San Bruno Fire Relief Fund

Our hearts go out to those who have lost loved ones, suffered injuries, and who have been displaced by the devastating explosion in San Bruno. JFCS (Jewish Family & Children's Services) is coordinating with other service providers to assist those in need. JFCS staff assisted at the emergency center set up at the San Bruno Recreation Center over the weekend and will continue to provide a full range of services for as long as needed.

Many of you have asked how you can help. Along with social services through JFCS and other agencies, we have been informed that cash donations to assist in the relief effort are the priority at this time. To contribute to this effort, JFCS has set up a San Bruno Fire Relief Fund. 100% of funds collected will go directly to victims through the Red Cross and the Silicon Valley Community Fund. You can donate online at our site by clicking here. At the page, choose "Mid-North Peninsula" as the region and "Other" as the service. Then you can write in "San Bruno Fire."

JFCS is also able to immediately provide temporary housing and direct services, including trauma counseling for children and adults, access to our Food Pantry, and other professional support to those in need. If you are aware of members of the community who need assistance, please contact Gayle Zahler, Associate Executive Director, at 415-449-1286 or email

Thank you very much.
