Firefighters filling the boot

July 23, 2005

Albany-- Some south Georgia firefighters are braving a different kind of heat for some special kids.

The Fraternal Order of Firefighters are standing outside of the Winn Dixie on Dawson Road in Albany to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. It's called the Fill the Boot campaign. All money raised will go towards supporting Jerry's Kids.

"It feels great. We try to help in every way we can. It's just another way that we can give back," says Joe Smith of the Albany Fire Department.

They hope to raise $5,000 over the next few weekends. They'll then present a final check to MDA.
