Fire and rescue to “fill the boot”

Stafford firefighters and paramedics will be collecting donations this holiday weekend for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Through Sunday, they’ll be at major intersections and community venues asking the public to help “fill the boot.” Look for the uniformed crew members at:

  • Warrenton Road and Plantation Drive, 
  • Warrenton Road and Cambridge Street, 
  • Jefferson Davis Highway and Courthouse Road, 
  • Garrisonville Road and Shelton Road, 
  • and Stafford Market Place.

This is the eighth year the department is participating. Their goal is to collect $35,000. For more information, visit the International Association of Fire Fighters website.
