Fill the Boot Amesbury Fire Dept
July 1, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
Since 1954, I.A.F.F. members have shown an unwavering commitment to defeating muscular dystrophy and related life-threatening diseases. Amesbury Firefighters I.A.F.F. Local 1783 have been collecting for MDA for over 30 years. With our rejuvenated Fill the Boot ® Campaign, your member fire fighters gather on the streets of downtown Amesbury for 2 Days during Amesbury Days collecting money in their boots from residents, neighbors and passersby. Over the past three years, the department has consistently been in the top 3rd of donors to MDA of Massachusetts. For a city of our size, this is an outstanding commitment from the firefighters and the members of the community. For 60 years strong, firefighters across the country have raised more than $558 million to save and improve lives of families fighting muscle disease. The members of the Amesbury Fire Department greatly appreciate the cooperation from all our businesses during our drive, the support of Amesbury Days, and the support from all our residents. As a community, the dollars that we collect in our boots are translating into game-changing research progress today for MDA.
This year our Fill the Boot ® campaign will occur Friday June 30th from 8am – 4pm and Saturday July 1st from 8am – 3pm.
