FDL Firefighters Local 400 to “Fill the Boot” for MDA
Fond du Lac Firefighters will once again be asking for
the public’s help to “Fill the Boot” and raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy
Association. The Fill the Boot campaign begins next Thursday, August 1st
at the corner of Division Street and Park Avenue from 10 am until 5 pm. Thanks
to a generous match from the owner of Magic Car Wash Express, the community’s
donations will be matched up to $10,000. The Fill the Boot campaign was started
in the early 1950’s by the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF),
and more than 60 years later, the IAFF continues the tradition – raising more
than $26 million each year for MDA.
Other “Fill the Boot” dates and times include:
Thursday, August 8th – at the KFIZ/Mountain
Dog Media studios (254 Winnebago Drive) & at Fond du Lac Fire Station #2 (4th
Street & National Avenue) – both locations, 10 AM to 5 PM.
Friday, August 9th: Main Street & 1st
Street in Fond du Lac – 10 AM to 5 PM.
