Burnaby Firefighters Charitable Society Endowment Fund
The Burnaby Firefighters Charitable Society raises money for community groups and non-profit organizations. The Society contributes to over 40 Lower Mainland charities and organizations, with a focus on Burnaby based charities. The Society is mainly funded by its members through payroll deductions, and personal time donated to community events.
The Burnaby Firefighters have taught thousands of students CPR. They founded the Vital Information Program, a tool that assists emergency personnel in a crisis.
In September 2005, the Burnaby Firefighters Charitable Society initiated a nutritional snack program at two of Burnaby's elementary schools and a community centre. Burnaby Firefighters now purchase and deliver regular, nutritional snacks for ten elementary schools, a high school and a community centre. The teachers have reported great results from this program. The children are more focused and learning in the classroom has improved.
