Members of the Mint Hill Volunteer Fire Department will hold their Fill the Boot collection to support their annual fundraising efforts and contribution to the local Muscular Dystrophy Association, an organization that benefits children and adults affected by neuromuscular diseases.
The collection will take place at the intersection of Lawyers Road and Matthews- Mint Hill Road Sat- urday, September 27, from 9 am to 3 pm.
Funds raised through the 2014 Mint Hill Fill the Boot will help support MDA’s programs of worldwide research, specialized health care services, and day-to-day support – which includes sending children affected by muscular dystrophy and related diseases
to a weeklong, barrier-free MDA summer camp at Camp Bethelwoods in York, SC.
In 2013, more than 100,000 fire fighters participated in Fill the Boot events across
the country and raised $26.2 million. Last year, Mint Hill Volunteer Fire Department raised a total of $4,800 for MDA. For the 60th anniversary, they’re looking to raise even more awareness and provide further support by setting a goal of collecting $6,000 this year.
