Continuing a 60-year tradition

— Sunnyside Fire Department will again be out collecting money for Muscular Dystrophy Association as a part of its annual “Fill the Boot” campaign. Friday from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at the corner of South Seventh Street and East Edison Ave., near the U.S. Post Office.

The firemen will be showing their support for the association as its members kick off the annual “Fill the Boot” fundraising campaign to help kids and adults with muscular dystrophy and related muscle-debilitating diseases live longer and grow.

The Fire Fighters are volunteering for another year of ‘Fill the Boot” to help provide the funds needed to find treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy and related diseases that severely limit strength and mobility, Executive Director Leah Nathan said.

The dedication of these fire fighters to the mission is unwavering, funding countless hours both with Fill the Boot and MDA Summer Camp to care for the kids and adults in the Sunnyside area,” she said.

“We know that their devotion to our families will make this year’s drive a success.”
