Windsor Severance Fire Rescue will be out this Labor Day weekend to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association in its annual Fill the Boot drive.

Every year since 1952, firefighters across the nation have been collecting money to support MDA: the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

This fundraiser has become an iconic one for firefighters in departments across the country. It all began when a Boston firefighter was approached by a family friend to help his child who was affected by Muscular Dystrophy. They went out on the streets that year and collected $5,000. In 1954 the International Association of Fire Fighters officially announced MDA as it’s charity of choice.
