Murray firefighters aim to ‘fill the boot’

Local News

MURRAY (News4Utah) – Murray firefighters hit the streets to help kids suffering from a life-altering disease.

They’re grabbing their boots and teaming up with Muscular Dystrophy Association to raise money for kids in need.

Firefighters will be standing at stoplights, boots in hand, to gather your donations.

Those funds will go towards new wheelchairs and sending kids to camps.

“We really want to engage the public in a good cause and that’s what we do in our job in the fire service is hopefully help people out and move things where they should be going in our society,” said Joseph Mittelman, Murray City Battalion Chief.

You can find those firefighters along Intermountain Drive in Murray for about a week.
