Scranton Firefighters, IAFF Local 60, invite you to Fill the Boot in Scranton to fight Muscular Dystrophy

Scranton, PA

For more than 60 years the International Association of Firefighters have been fighting Muscular Dystrophy. Last year the union raised some $18 million dollars with the participation of over 100,000 firefighters and some 1,500 union affiliates.

IAFF Local 60 in Scranton are working this Labor Day Weekend during the La Festa activities in Scranton to “fill the boot” releasing a statement saying, “When we’re not fighting fires, training, or preparing for what comes next, we find ways to serve our community. This weekend is our MDA Boot Drop on Courthouse Square! Our partners, the Hilton Scranton, will be selling roast beef sandwiches, while firefighters collect for MDA. Join us!”
