East Contra Costa Fire Protection District Firefighters will be at the intersection of Balfour and Fairview today in Brentwood from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm helping raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
The firefighters will be on the street accepting donations from drivers parked at the intersection in a Fill The Boot Event. The money collected will go towards care and research for local kids and families dealing with the effects of muscular dystrophy.
On May 23, East County residents donated $13,474 which included over $1,000 in change. Firefighters will be looking to break last year’s total funds raised of $19,391 during the two-day.
