MDA "Fill The Boot" Begins Friday

You can do your part this weekend to help local people with Muscular Dystrophy.

The Amarillo Fire Department said their annual Fill The Boot campaign will begin this Friday and run through Sunday.

Firefighters will be at many intersections across Amarillo collecting donations in firefighter boots.

Dana Havlik with the Amarillo Fire Department says every little bit helps. He says, "We count thousands of dollars in change and dollar bills every year. The largest to the smallest donations all go for a great cause and that money will stay right here in the panhandle to help local kids with muscular dystrophy."

In 2007, over $38,000 dollars was raised during the campaign. The goal this year is to raise $45,000 dollars.
