Firefighters Ask You To Fill The Boot For MDA 2024

Tuesday, May 14, 2024
Los Angeles-

Firefighters across the country have collected critical funds in the community since 1954 – one dollar at a time – as part of the "Fill the Boot" program for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). 

During this 70th year of Fill The Boot, your local firefighters will be continuing this long-standing tradition, as Los Angeles Fire Department members kick off the annual program raising funds to support MDA’s vision to accelerate research, advance care, and advocate for the support of MDA families.


Dedicated firefighters from your LAFD will hit the streets, asking pedestrians, motorists, customers, and other passersby to donate to MDA on May 29, 30, and 31, 2024 from 8 AM to 2 PM at locations across the city (see list below)

Individuals and local businesses can also contribute to firefighters' fundraising efforts by donating online at:

The partnership between MDA and the International Association of Firefighters has been ongoing for nearly seven decades. It has raised more than $700 million, and over 300,000 firefighters nationwide have been involved.

“Participating in Fill the Boot is our way of letting the communities we serve know that we are responding on the front lines and responding to your calls for help by assisting our neediest community members in the fight of their lives,”  - UFLAC President Freddy Escobar.

“Every day, our firefighters go beyond the call of duty. Partnering with the MDA is a long-standing tradition, and it makes me proud that our members have an unwavering drive and passion to be out in our communities collecting donations to assist in much-needed therapy, education, research, advocacy, and support of neuromuscular diseases.” - Los Angeles Fire Department Chief Kristin Crowley.
