Fill the Boot
- Date: -
San Angelo firefighters will hit the streets the next three days during their annual Fill the Boot fundraising campaign for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
The San Angelo Fire Department and the San Angelo Fire Firefighters Association since 1999 have engaged in the fundraising effort, during which motorists at four intersections drop dollar bills and loose change into the firefighters’ rubber boots. The intersections will be the same as in years past:
- 29th Street and North Bryant Boulevard.
- Abe and Harris streets.
- Johnson Street and Knickerbocker Road.
- Sherwood Way and Avenue N.
Firefighters will collect funds from 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. each day Wednesday through Friday. Motorists are reminded to help protect the firefighters by slowing down when approaching the intersections, watching for the first-responders in the streets, and being aware of cars braking in front of them.
San Angelo firefighters raise approximately $50,000 for the MDA and local families suffering from neuromuscular diseases during the annual effort.
