SAFD hosting its annual Fill the Boot fundraiser

San Angelo firefighters will be on the streets from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. April 27-29 for the annual Fill the Boot campaign to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The San Angelo Fire Department and the San Angelo Fire Fighters Association annual fundraiser allows motorists at four intersections drop dollar bills and loose change into firefighter’s rubber boots.

The intersections are as follows:

  • 29th Street and North Bryant Boulevard
  • Abe Street and Harris Avenue
  • Johnson Street and Knickerbocker Road
  • Sherwood Way and West Avenue N

Each year local firefighters raise approximately $50,000 for the MDA through their efforts. Over the past 17 years they have raised more than a half-million dollars for families in San Angelo suffering from the disease.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and be aware of cars braking in front of them to help protect the firefighters when approaching the intersections.
