The Newton Fire Department will be participating in the "Fill the Boot" campaign this Saturday, August 23rd from 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM at the intersection of W 4th St S & 1st Ave W. During this event fire fighters hit the streets where they ask pedestrians, motorists and other passers-by to contribute – money in the boot – for MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association).
Throughout 2014, MDA and the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) are celebrating 60 years of a partnership committed to saving lives. As the Muscular Dystrophy Association's largest national sponsor, the IAFF helps fuel MDA's mission to improve and save the lives of more than one million Americans affected by muscle disease.
