MIDLAND - It's almost that time of year again when Tall City firefighters take to the streets in a fundraising effort to help a cause dear to their hearts.

It's the annual "Fill the Boot" campaign, benefiting the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

And just like it sounds, firefighters can be seen at area intersections with boots in hand, hoping everyone will help fill their fire boots with donations.

On Wednesday, they kicked off those efforts.

Last year, Midland firefighters raised over $100,000 for MDA.

This year, they want to beat that mark.

Firefighters will be at the following locations from 8:30a.m. to 6:00p.m.:

  • Midland Drive & Loop 250
  • Midland Drive & Andrews Highway
  • Midkiff & Wadley
  • Rankin Highway & Longview
