The members of the San Bruno Fire Department volunteer their time to give back to the community in many ways throughout the year. San Bruno Firefighters hold fundraisers such as the annual Pancake Breakfast to raise money for charities like the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation.
In addition to raising money for charity, San Bruno Firefighters participate in programs that directly help San Bruno residents. San Bruno Firefighters hold an annual toy drive to collect and distribute toys to less fortunate families in the city. San Bruno Firefighters also have donated their time and skills to renovate projects in the city such as the American Legion Hall and the homes of several needy residents through the Rebuilding Together organization.
