Fill the Boot Continues

Fond du Lac Fire and Rescue has one more stop for the Fill the Boot Campaign this week. Firefighters will be on the corner of Park and Division on Thursday collecting donations to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. 

Chief Peter O’Leary tells us he’s always amazed at the support they see during this fundraising effort, saying “there are so many people in this community and so many businesses that help us with our drive to end muscular dystrophy by filling the boot. And we love doing it, we love being a part – the city has been great at letting the firefighters, on and off duty, be part of this.”

O’Leary adds that “I can’t thank this community enough. We had more money raised last year
than any other fire department in the state of Wisconsin. And I mean bigger than Madison, Milwaukee, Green Bay – we did it. Fond du Lac Fire did it,
and you folks did it.”
