Every year Irving Firefighters position themselves at the busiest intersections of Irving with their firefighter boots in hand to raise funds for their annual Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Fill-the-Boot campaign. All the money collected through this effort is used locally in the Dallas County area with 77 cents of every $1 going directly to research, services and education and 23 cents going to operating expenses.
2018 Fill-the-Boot Collection Results
During the annual Fill-the-Boot campaign, the Irving Fire Department, Irving Professional Firefighters Association and Irving Citizens Fire Academy Alumni collected $80,022.26 to help those with muscular dystrophy thanks to the generosity of the Irving community!
The Irving Fire Department is proud to continue contributing to this worthy cause to help find the cure for muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away physical strength, independence and life.
