Claremore firefighters will conduct their annual Fill-the-Boot event Labor Day Weekend, benefiting the Greater Tulsa Chapter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Last year, Claremore L1077 Firefighters collected $4,517 for MDA thanks to the generosity of Claremore citizens. The Tulsa Metro area is consistently one of the top collections in the nation for dollars raise and firefighters are looking forward to setting a new record this year. The Fill-the-Boot tradition began almost 60 years ago. Proceeds raised during Fill-the-Boot will help support MDA services and research programs, including visits to an MDA Clinic, local support groups, equipment repairs and MDA Summer Camp. The Fill-the-Boot campaign will be collecting over the Labor Day Holiday. Firefighters will be at various intersections throughout Claremore with, boots in hand, asking motorists to make donations.
