'Fill the Boot' drive biggest yet for City Fire in support of MDA
City firefighters raised $5,601 in support of the Muscular Dystrophy Association this year as part of its annual "Fill the Boot" campaign.
It's the most ever donated in a single MDA boot drive, according to Greg Ireland, president of IAFF Local 896.
On Friday, off duty firefighters, stood at the intersections of Main and Court and Ellicott and Court with firefighter boots and asked passersby to drop in donations.
"It was an amazing day," Ireland said.
