Somebody call 9-1-1, Nassau County is on fire!
From Saturday, September 5th through Monday, September 7th, Nassau County Fire Rescue's Local 3101 and the Callahan Volunteer Fire Department participated in the 2015 Fill the Boot Campaign and collected over $35,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Congratulations on exceeding last year's total by over $15,000 and for setting a new record!
For the last 60 years, the Muscular Dystrophy Association has partnered with the International Association of Fire Fighters for the annual Fill the Boot Campaign. Fire fighters across the nation volunteer countless hours to raise funds needed for medical research and to help people who have been affected by this disease.
Thank you to all the firefighters who volunteered their time last weekend, as well as to the citizens of Nassau County. Your generosity is greatly appreciated and we want you all to know that your donations, no matter how small, will help people right here in our community because all the money raised stays right here in Northeast Florida. A big thank you as well to those who worked behind the scenes to insure that the firefighters collecting money were given water and food throughout the day.
