Firefighters from the Pitt Meadows fire department were out last weekend as part of the Fill the Boot campaign, which raises money for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.
Initial estimates indicated about $4,000 in donations were collected at the different collection stations around Pitt Meadows last weekend.
In the meantime, this coming Saturday, Sept. 28, Maple Ridge firefighters will be collecting for the cause.
Teams will be at the two Save-On-Foods stores and Coopers Foods during the day handing out information about muscular dystrophy and assisting customers in carrying their groceries to the car, while encouraging them to add a donation to their bill.
Then, in the evening, firefighters will be circulating – boots in hand – around to most of the local watering holes collecting direct donations to the cause.
