Help Out The MDA By Filling The Boot
The Olivette Fire Department is hitting the streets, and you can help them fill their boots for a good cause!
What is the MDA Fill the Boot?
Since 1954, firefighters across the country have collected critical funds in the community – one dollar at a time – as part of the Fill the Boot program to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). The partnership between MDA and the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) began when the IAFF signed a proclamation designating MDA as its charity of choice, vowing to continue raising awareness and funds to ensure effective treatments and therapies are found.
The dollars raised through Fill the Boot fund MDA’s mission of empowering people living with neuromuscular disease to achieve their potential.
Let’s support families in our community so we can all grow stronger and live longer together. Thank you for your help!
Date: C-crew, Aug 19th
Crews will be collecting at Olive and Price.
The tentative time is between 11 am -1 pm (this could depend on calls; crews will adapt as needed).
