El Paso firefighters are asking El Pasoans to “Fill the Boot”
El Paso firefighters and the MDA kicked off the annual “Fill the Boot” campaign Thursday. This year they are celebrating their 60 year partnership.
Members of the El Paso fire department local 51 will spread out across the city with boots in hand for this year's drive starting May 16th through the 26th.
All the money raised will go to muscular dystrophy programs for worldwide research, specialized health care services, and day-to-day support.
The El Paso firefighters hope to collect $100,000 this year.
