Portland firefighters took to the streets August 12th through the 14th in support of the annual Fill-the-Boot campaign for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
Portland Firefighters raised an astonishing $14,775!!!
Miss Oregon even stopped by to donate to MDA!
100 percent of the donations are dedicated to the local chapter of the MDA. This chapter helps provide assistance for medical care expenses, specialized equipment, and other costs including MDA Camp, and local support groups.
The Portland Firefighters Association (PFFA) Local 43 also donated an additional $3,000 from their Charitable Fund, money which is directly donated by Portland firefighters.
The Fill-the-Boot campaign is an opportunity to demonstrate the commitment by local families, businesses, fire officials, and firefighters' unions in supporting MDA and their important missions of helping those with muscular dystrophy and related diseases.
