Yesterday and today, off-duty Portland Fire & Rescue firefighters be asking motorists to "Fill the Boot" for Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). These volunteers will be posted at several locations in Portland Fire & Rescue’s service area, asking motorists to donate cash into their firefighter boots.
FILL THE BOOT LOCATIONS:
Friday, August 12, 2011 from 3:00 pm to 6:00, West Burnside and 23rd
Friday, August 12, 2011 from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm, SE 122nd and Stark
The money raised by firefighters will be donated 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. Additionally, many local firefighters serve as counselors at MDA Camp.
Thank you in advance for your support!
