South Shore Fire Department is proud to participate in the IAFF Fill-The-Boot Campaign. From coast to coast, the IAFF Fill-the-Boot Campaign is an outstanding performer when it comes to raising funds for the life-giving programs offered by the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Many firefighters involved with Fill-the-Boot know first-hand about life with a neuromuscular disease, and the importance of MDA's missions of help and hope.
Besides funding vital research, Fill-the-Boot provides funds for a nationwide network of MDA medical clinics, support groups and summer camps, as well as financial assistance with the purchase of wheelchairs, leg braces and communication devices.
IAFF is MDA's single largest organizational sponsor, and the logic of the two groups' partnership has been plain for more than 50 years. From the Atlantic to the Pacific, people from all walks of life are coping with devastating neuromuscular diseases, and firefighters and their families are among them.
The difference is that firefighters, as a brotherhood, and through their Fill-the-Boot efforts, have a special opportunity to capitalize on their numbers and wield their unity to create a matchless force for good works.
South Shore Fire Department offers citizens the opportunity to purchase a customized commemorative brick. All bricks are installed along the sidewalk and around the flagpole at Station 8, located at 3900 Old Green Bay Road. Proceeds will be used to maintain our equipment and supplies, such as physical fitness equipment, public education materials, and fire safety materials. Contact Hailey Berens for more information.
