Liberal Fire Department: 2022 Muscular Dystrophy Campaign
Joe Denoyer - October 12, 2022 10:57 am
For more than 65 years firefighters across the nation have partnered with MDA in their commitment to defeating muscular dystrophy and related life-threatening disease.
This year Liberal firefighters again joined in this fight with the signature event, the annual “Fill the Boot” campaign. This event is primarily in conjunction with the annual MDA Labor Day Telethon project. Locally the event extends through the month of September to take advantage of local events and fund-raising opportunities.
We are pleased to announce that through the generosity of all who donated by filling the boot, $5,057.94 was raised and delivered to MDA headquarters to be put to use benefiting many individuals in their battle with Muscular Dystrophy. Liberal firefighters wish to say a heartfelt “Thank You” to everyone who donated. Whether you gave a little or you gave a lot, it all added up to a generous donation from the Liberal community for this worthy project. We have been assured by MDA representatives that funds collected in our community are earmarked back to our community for those in need. Funds raised each year are used for everything from sending children to summer camp to providing relief from the costs of treatment and equipment.
The Liberal Fire Department would like to extend a thank you to the Wal-Mart Supercenter for allowing our personnel to occupy the front of their business over Labor Day Weekend. Their generosity helped to make this project a great success.
The Liberal Fire Department will look forward to a continued partnership with MDA in the future, and hope for ultimate success in the battle against Muscular Dystrophy.
