The Peninsula Health Care District donated $50,000 to support youth and senior programs displaced by the destruction of the Millbrae Community Center in an arson fire.

The payment, approved during a Board of Directors meeting last week, comes nearly one month after the facility was lost in a four-alarm blaze started by two teen boys.

Lawrence Cappel, president of the district board, said in a prepared statement he hoped the money would help continue the services formerly offered at the facility.

“We are saddened by the destruction of the Millbrae Community Center and recognize the important role it plays in the lives of our community members,” he said. “We are proud to offer Millbrae our support, as ensuring availability and accessibility to local youth and senior programs is critical to the overall health and wellness of our community.”
