Firefighters work to "Fill the Boot" in Stevens Point

Posted:
STEVENS POINT (WAOW) -

Stevens Point firefighters are filling their boots for a cause.

The Stevens Point Fire Department is holding its annual Fill the Boot fundraiser.

Proceeds go toward the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

About a dozen firefighters collected money from drivers at a busy city intersection.

The money goes toward area children diagnosed with the disease.

"We are all off-duty volunteering our time, but it is nice to be out on the street for this cause," said Tom Wastart, a Stevens Point firefighter.

Firefighters say last year the department raised $9,000.

They say this year their goal is $10,000.

The fundraiser ends on Friday.
