-

The Los Angeles Fire Department is honored to again support United Firefighters of Los Angeles (UFLAC) Local 112 in the 12th Annual Fill the Boot campaign to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). 

Last year we collected over $116,000 for families in the Los Angeles area living with a neuromuscular disease.  The money collected is used to fund clinics at local university hospital affiliated clinics, pay for support groups and send children with neuromuscluar disease to summer camp.  The donated monies are also used to fund projects to find the casues and cures for more than 40 neuromuscular diseases. 

With your support, we can do even better for these families this year!

Collection points are spread throughout Los Angeles.  Please look for your local firefighters at these locations on April 18-20, 2017 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM:
