Lakewood, Wash. – On Saturday, June 25th, West Pierce Firefighters Local 1488 will be collecting money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) at two locations in Lakewood. Firefighters will be at SummerFest at Fort Steilacoom Park and the Lakewood Towne Center from noon until 6pm.
Firefighters are volunteering to “Fill the Boot” for MDA, which supports those with muscular dystrophy and other related diseases, as well as their families.
On Friday, July 8th from noon until 6pm, West Pierce Firefighters Local 1488 will be in University Place to “Fill the Boot” at the intersection of 27th Street and Bridgeport Way.
Last year, more than $23,000 was raised in these two cities for this event and we appreciate the outpouring generosity and spare change. Thank you in advance for the support of our citizens!
