SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., (KRON) — Local San Francisco firefighters volunteer to help feed the local community amid the coronavirus pandemic.

On Tuesday a group seven latino firefighters, SF Los Bomberos from the San Francisco Fire Department volunteered their time off duty to at the Centro Social Ombrero to help distribute bags of free food to the latino community living in the Mission District.

“We’re just trying to help out the latino community because we’re latino too,” SFFD Lieutenant Mariano Elias said. “Even though we are firefighters, we are also humans and have hearts too … we care about the people and the community that we work for.”

Being Cinco de Mayo, volunteers and families stood by at a safe distance as they were treated to a mariachi performance.
