GREENFIELD — A traditional fundraiser of the Greenfield Fire Territory could be in jeopardy, as some city officials are expressing concerns about safety and liability for curbside fundraising.
Many firefighters participate in the annual “Fill the Boot” campaign to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Carrying big firefighter boots, they solicit donations from motorists stopped at traffic lights. Greenfield’s campaign is one of the most successful ones in the state.
But there’s one problem: A city law prohibits people from soliciting money in the streets.
