Asian Firefighters Charitable Foundation

This foundation is newly formed from members of the Asian Firefighters Association to better serve the Asian community. The specific purpose of this foundation is to give back to the Asian Community. This foundation developed from Asian Firefighters working with their community partners and last year distributed around 3,000 toys over 2 separate days to underprivileged children in the Chinatown community. At these events, the underprivileged children were able to have some free food, live entertainment, a true Christmas experience with falling snow, a train ride and meeting an Asian Santa Claus. From participating in these events, we wanted to do more for our community and we started the Asian Firefighters Charitable Foundation to expand our charity work to better serve the Asian Community.

The Issue:

The Asian Firefighters Association has in the past years been helping the Asian Community in San Francisco by volunteering at various community events such as Thanksgiving Meal at Self Help for the Elderly and most recently giving toys away in the Chinatown community with the help of the San Francisco Firefighters Toy Program. To better serve the Asian Community this Foundation was formed to target helping the most overlooked members of our community. As firefighters we seen how a little help could bring out a positive outcome.

The Solution:

We will seek donation and grants to use in providing needed assistance in our community. From toys, meals, school supplies and hopefully scholarships to our community.
