Despite today’s blistering temperatures, Milton’s firefighters were out on the roads again raising money for the 2011 Muscular Dystrophy Association Fill the Boot Drive.
The department’s efforts have already gotten off to a great start this year, with firefighters raising $10,638 June 3. Milton firefighters will continue their drive throughout the summer and into early September, so keep an eye out for them collecting at busy intersections.
Here’s the schedule:
•B shift will collect on July 8 and 29
•A shift will collect on Aug. 12 and Sept. 2
In just four years, the City of Milton Fire Department has raised more than $161,000 for MDA, which uses the money to aid local children and adults affected by neuromuscular diseases by providing wheelchairs, leg braces, clinic visits, support groups and a chance for children to attend Camp Walk-N-Roll.
