GREENFIELD — The Greenfield Fire Department raised $15,590 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Central Indiana this year during its annual “Fill the Boot” campaign.
Each year, firefighters across the country raise money for MDA by holding their footwear out to passing motorists in hopes of collecting loose change.
Over the course of the three-week effort in Greenfield, local firefighters took away more than donations; they walked away with a sense of satisfaction.
“We take a lot of pride in being a part of that,” said firefighter Jason Davis, one of the event’s local organizers. “That is our number one charity throughout the year.”
