Milton firefighters raise nearly $11,000 in a day.


At the June 6 City Council meeting, representatives from the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) stopped by to show their appreciation to Milton’s Fire Department and City Council for their continued support of the yearly Fill the Boot Campaign.

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:

•C shift will collect again on June 24
•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.
