Dublin, Laurens County Fire Departments on Course to Raise $12K for MDA | Community Spirit
From the City of Dublin's blog:
The International Association of Fire Fighters’ Fill-the-Boot campaign for MDA is a time-honored summer fundraising tradition. Each year, hundreds of Fire Fighters across the country invite the public at malls, grocery markets, public intersections, and large retail stores to fill a fire fighters’ boot with donations for MDA. On Saturday, June 15th, our local heroes, the Dublin, East Dublin and Laurens County Fire Departments took part in our community’s First Annual Fill-the-Boot Drive for MDA!
Firefighters were located at Dublin’s Wal-mart, Kroger, Harveys, Food Depot, and Southern Family Market in East Dublin from 10:00am until 4:00pm. In those six hours the firefighters collected $4,467.13. The citizens of Dublin, Laurens County, and East Dublin showed huge support for MDA.
The Dublin/Laurens County Fire Fighters also hosted a MDA Softball Tournament in May which raised an additional $1,100.00 for the charity. With their 4th Annual Golf Tournament scheduled for August 10, 2013 at Riverview Golf Course, the Dublin/Laurens County Fire Departments are on course to raise over $12,000.00 for MDA!
Congratulations to our local heroes – the Dublin, East Dublin, and Laurens County Fire Fighters and a BIG THANK YOU to our wonderful community for your support of a very worthy cause – MDA!
