Firefighters to hold Fill-the-Boot event

Firefighters in the North Florida area will participate in a fundraiser called Fill-the-Boot during the month of August to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Firefighters will be at major intersections with their boots so that motorists may give their donations in an effort to help firefighters support MDA.

MDA helps children and adults who are affected by one of more than 40 neuromuscular diseases covered by MDA’s comprehensive medical servic es and research programs.

Monies raised will be pre sented to MDA on the Jerry Lewis MDA Labor Day Telethon on Sept. 1.
