Firefighters hitting the streets Thursday to raise money for charity
August 22, 2013, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

Belmont firefighters will take to the streets on Thursday to help raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Members of the Belmont Fire Department will participate in the “Fill the Boot Campaign” from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the intersection of Ralston Avenue and Alameda de las Pulgas.

Firefighters will be on the street corners with empty boots asking drivers and other passersby to fill them up with donations, according to the fire department.

The donations will be given to the MDA to fund services for Bay Area patients who suffer from neuromuscular diseases, fire officials said.

The MDA provides patients in need with wheelchairs, leg braces, speaking devices and other items, as well as trips to summer camps.

Belmont firefighters raised more than $3,000 during last year’s “Fill the Boot Campaign,” according to the fire department.
