Local Firefighters surpass their goals after filling the boot

Staff Report
NewsWest 9

In recent weeks, you probably saw them boots in hand, pounding the pavement at local intersections, firefighters asking for your help.

And it paid off for the Muscular Dystophy Association.

Midland and Odessa firefighters hit the streets in their annual Fill The Boot campaigns.

Both fire departments say thanks to your generosity, they broke all records.

Midland Firefighters raised more than 100-thousand dollars over a three day period, surpassing last year's total by more than 20-grand.

Odessa Firefighters raised more than 70-thousand in three days.

That's at least 52-thousand more than last year.

All of the money from the Fill The Boot campaign benefits our local M-D-A.

The annual M-D-A Telethon will air on Labor Day, September Third on NewsWest Nine.
