County Fire Fighter's "Fill the Boot" Campaign for MDA Begins Today!

Montgomery County Fire Fighter's will be at intersections throughout Montgomery County this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8am to 8 pm conducting our annual "Fill the Boot" campaign for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).  Please consider placing any lose cash or change you may have into the fire boot.  Every little bit helps!  If someone would like to make a donation on-line they can go to the IAFF Local 1664 MDA Fill the Boot 

All money raised will stay in the local area to assist MDA with vital research, patient treatments, and MDA Summer Camp. Last year Montgomery County Fire Fighters collected over $254,000.00 which was the 5th highest amount in the country by a fire department.

Montgomery County Fire Fighters will appear on the local portion of the Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon, Monday September 6 during the 12:00 pm hour, to make our check presentation to the MDA. This year Montgomery County Fire Fighters hope to raise $275,000.00.

People can go to Facebook and look at our page, Montgomery County Fire Fighters and MDA, to track our progress.
