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 fire fighters 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 fire fighters and their families are among them.
The difference is that fire fighters, 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.
Proceeds will be used to maintain and update equipment and supplies not included in the municipal budget, such as physical fitness equipment and public education and fire safety materials.
