Beaumont kicks off Fill the Boot campaign
BEAUMONT - Beaumont firefighters are holding their boots in addition to wearing them.
They kicked off the annual Fill the Boot campaign Thursday. Mayor Becky Ames dropped the first ceremonial dollar into a boot at the main fire station on College Street.
Every year firefighters work with the Muscular Dystrophy Association. During the past 17 years they've raised nearly $600,000 the local MDA chapter.
Firefighters from Beaumont will collect for Fill the Boot this Friday and the following two Fridays after that. You'll see them at a number of major intersections in the city. Port Arthur firefighters are also collecting for MDA.
