It’s time once again to help “Fill the Boot” for a good cause.
Firefighters from Snohomish County Fire District 1, which serves unincorporated Lynnwood, will be collecting donations through the end of August for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. They’ll be outside grocery stores in the Fire District 1 service area every Friday and Saturday.
Last year, Fire District 1 crews were among the top three fundraisers in the statewide Fill the Boot drive, collecting $34,000 for MDA. They hope to raise $50,000 this year.
Firefighters with the Lynnwood Fire Department also will be participating in the Fill the Boot drive this month, although their plans have not yet been released.
Firefighters across the country participate in the Fill the Boot drive — using firefighting boots to hold the donations they collect for MDA.
