Fill the Boot Thank You to the Community
Thank you to everyone who took the time to generously donate to our annual Fill the Boot charity drive. At two different locations this past month we were able to raise over $22,000 for the MDA!
For 60 years, Fill the Boot has been a firefighter tradition - giving families affected by muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases hope for the future and support for the present.
Every year your local firefighters dedicate their time off from work to help raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s (MDA) Fill the Boot charity drive. Throughout the year, and across the nation, firefighters dressed in their firefighting gear ask for donations from drivers on street corners and intersections while holding up their firefighter boots.
In Contra Costa County alone, there are over 262 families who directly benefit from the efforts of your local firefighters and the generous donations by members of the community. In the last 6 years our organization alone has raised almost $300,000 for the MDA! This is an incredible accomplishment and we are thankful for everyone who generously donates money. Thank you!
