In response to President Barack Obama's "Day of Service" challenge for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, members from the Church of Scientology of Pasadena met on January 20th at Station 31 to present the Pasadena Fire Department with a check for almost $1200 to help fund the Pasadena Emergency Response Training program. (P.E.R.T.)
Ms. Eden Stein, President of the Church of Scientology  of Pasadena, remarked that "Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard once said, 'A being is only as valuable as he can serve others.' It's all about helping people. We are happy and proud to help the Fire Department. They are our heroes."
Pasadena Scientology Volunteer Ministers  who recently graduated from the P.E.R.T. program presented the check to Pasadena Fire Operations Captain Danny Serno who responded with thanks and the observation that "This money means a lot to us, especially in this crucial time."
