Fire department collecting donations for MDA

Posted:

MILTON, Ga. – The Milton Fire Department has kicked off its annual Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) “Fill the Boot” drive at various locations across the city, so keep an eye out for firefighters who will be out collecting donations every other Friday through June 13.

Last year, the department raised more than $66,000 over six days of “Fill the Boot” drives, setting a new department fundraising record for the MDA.

To date, the Milton Fire Department has raised nearly $353,000 for MDA, which uses the money to aid local children and adults affected by neuromuscular diseases by providing wheelchairs, leg braces, clinic visits, support groups and a chance for children to attend Camp Walk-N-Roll.
