Help Fire Fighters “Fill The Boot”

By Staff | Aug 27, 2009

Emmetsburg Fire Fighters will participate in a fundraiser called “Fill The Boot” Saturday morning, Aug. 29. The fundraiser will benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Fire Fighters will be at the intersection of Highways 4 and 18 with their boots so motorists may give their dollars and change to help the Fire Fighters in their support of MDA.

Last year during the “Fill the Boot” program, the Emmetsburg Fire Fighters raised $1,770 for area children and adults battling neuromuscular disorders. Fire Fighters are dedicated to saving lives and protecting people. Their alliance with MDA proves that they are working to save lives and are fighting to find a cure.

MDA helps children and adults who are affected by any of 43 neuromuscular diseases covered by MDA’s comprehensive medical services and research programs. MDA receives no government funding and charges no fees to those families served by the association.
