Mesquite, TX - July 6, 2017 - Representatives from the Mesquite Firefighters Association (MFA) presented a $38,000 check to Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Representative Caity Bowen during the City Council meeting on July 3. The funds were raised during the MDA's annual Fill the Boot campaign, supported by firefighters throughout the country for more than 60 years.
The campaign was conducted in May with members of the MFA collecting donations at major intersections in Mesquite. The donations support research for 43 different diseases including muscular dystrophy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). A portion of the funds are also used to send thousands of children to summer camps matched to their needs.
