Milton FD breaks record with $66k in 'Boot' drives.

The City of Milton Fire Department raised more than $66,000 over six days of "Fill the Boot" drives this spring, setting a new department fundraising record for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), said Fire Chief Robert Edgar.

The total represents a significant increase over last year's record-breaking total, which speaks volumes to the generosity of Milton residents and motorists on Milton roads, said Edgar.

Edgar said B Shift, which raised money on Friday, May 10 and June 21, brought in the most -- more than $23,000. They will be recognized by the department for the achievement.

To date the City of Milton Fire Department has raised nearly $353,000 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.
