The FDC Foundation Gives Back to South San Francisco Fire

May 13, 2021

At Fire Dept. Coffee, we love supporting organizations that share a love of giving back and helping those in need. 

That’s why we’re donating $1,500 to support the South San Francisco Professional Firefighters Union, Local 1507. We know how hard these firefighters work day in and day out, and yet they are also actively looking for ways to make their communities better.

Our donation through the Fire Department Coffee Foundation will be used to help pay medical bills and other expenses for first responders injured in the line of duty or battling illness related to their work.

Local 1507 represents a collection of firehouses in the South San Francisco area, and the impact this group makes is felt for miles around. In 2016, it founded the South San Francisco Firefighters Charitable Foundation with a mission to “raise funds and provide support for our community’s veterans, ill and burn injured children and our under-privileged, and underserved citizens.”

To achieve that mission, the union holds various fundraisers throughout the year with their Memorial Day Pancake Breakfast, annual bocce ball tournament and the sale of fire department-themed breast cancer awareness shirts.

While these firefighters are focused on taking care of others, we’re honored that our donation will help them take care of their own men and women when they need it most.

Alex Bourque went to the orthopedist for knee pain. Maybe a strained ligament, he thought. The actual diagnosis strained his entire world. Cancer? It seemed impossible. He was 25 years old. He fought fires for a living and came home to his young family — a wife and a 3-year-old son and another baby boy on the way.
