Yesterday you might have noticed our local firemen standing in some of our major intersections in Midland and Odessa holding boots, its all for a great cause. The Midland and Odessa Fire Departments along with Professional Fire Fighters Association Local #4405 and Professional Fire Fighters Association Local #1665 are celebrating their 60th year of partnership with MDA.

Their Fill-The-Boot campaign kicked off yesterday and will run through Saturday. In Midland, firefighters will be out at the intersections of Midland Dr & Loop 250, Midland Dr & Andrews Hwy, Midkiff & Wadley Ave, and Garfield & Golf Course from 9:00 am-6:00 pm all three days. In Odessa, firefighters will be out at the intersections of 8th & Dixie, 42nd & Tanglewood, and 42nd & Andrews Hwy from 8:30 am-5:30 pm all three days. 

“Throughout 2014, MDA and firefighters are celebrating 60 years of proud partnership, joined together in the fight against life-threatening muscle disease, said Associate Executive Director, Stephanie Hartlieb. “Firefighters in our area do more for MDA and the families we serve than any other group, dedicating countless hours of their time every year participating in Fill the Boot drives and at MDA Summer Camp. We're grateful for the support of these inspiring, selfless individuals who have made a profound impact on our families’ health, wellbeing and quality of life, and we're excited to make this year’s Fill the Boot campaign the most successful yet. We’re also hoping to have a little fun as the two cities head out to the streets to Fill the Boot on the same three days for the first time ever.” 

 

 

Make sure when your out and about to have money ready to fill the boot more than ever before!
