Menomonee Falls firefighters are seeking the public's help to fill their boots Monday to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (M.D.A.).
Falls firefighters will be collecting donations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the intersection of Pilgrim Road and Silver Spring Drive, and downtown at Main Street and Appleton Avenue.
All donations benefit local MDA clients, helping to send children and young adults to MDA Summer Camp in Camp Lake, purchase and repair wheelchairs, and facilitate support groups and clinic visits at Children’s Hospital and Community Memorial Hospital.
The International Association of Fire Fighters (I.A.F.F.), representing fire departments across the country, raised $27.2 million of the MDA's total $61.4 million fundraising in 2011. This is the IAFF's 57th year supporting the MDA.
