‘Fill-the-Boot’ campaign kicks off Tuesday in Loudoun County

Members of the Loudoun County Fire-Rescue System and the Loudoun County Career Fire Fighters Association Local 3756 will kick off the annual “Fill-the-Boot” drive starting Tuesday.

Donations will be collected at various locations across the county until Sept. 4 with proceeds benefiting the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Jerry's Kids.

“We are fully committed to this great cause and the generosity of Loudoun County citizens truly makes this week a success each and every year,” said Fire Chief W. Keith Brower Jr. in a prepared statement. “Your donations are the true meaning of neighbors helping neighbors.”

The “Fill-the-Boot” drive is a partnership between MDA and the International Association of Fire Fighters. For 61 years, the IAFF has pledged to assist MDA in any way possible until a cure is found. Research and assistance for individuals suffering from neuromuscular disease can be an incredible financial burden on a family.
