Fill the Boot fund-raiser Friday

Sunnyside Professional Firefighters Local #3542 and volunteer firefighters will be stopping cars at the intersection of Seventh Street and Edison Avenue, asking for money this Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The firefighters' efforts are part of the annual Fill the Boot fund-raiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

According to Josh Roe of the Sunnyside Fire Department, last year the department raised $2,092, which was less than normal due to a rain storm.

In 2002, the department raised $3,300.

The money raised at this Friday's event will be used to help the less fortunate people living in the area.
