LCFS kicks off ‘Fill the Boot’ campaign next week to raise funds for local MDA families

Lexington County Fire Service firefighters will take to the streets April 20 to April 22 to collect funds to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

This drive aims to help raise funds to liberate kids and adults from the difficulties of living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that severely weaken muscle strength and mobility.

During the days of the fundraiser, motorists will see firefighters at the following locations throughout the County collecting donations:

 

  • Platt Spring & Emmanuel Church roads
  • Pine St. & Ramblin Rd
  • Juniper Springs & Two Notch roads
  • Four-way intersection at Oak Drive and Mineral Springs Rd
  • Columbia Avenue & West Main Street
  • Intersection of Amicks Ferry Road and Highway 76
  • Intersection of Church Street and East 1st Street
  • Walmart entrance on South Lake Drive

Firefighters will be collecting donations from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on April 20 and April 21, and they will be collecting donations from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 22.

These funds also help give local kids suffering from the disease the opportunity to experience the best week of the year at the MDA summer camp, free of charge, at Camp Pleasant Ridge and Camp Twin Lakes.
