The Barrie Professional Firefighters Association is invited residents to fill their boots this weekend.
The association is holding its 49th Annual Boot Drive for Muscular Dystrophy this weekend at various locations around Barrie. Since this campaign began in 1970, Barrie has helped raise over $2.6 million for charitable organizations.
The Barrie Professional Firefighters Association, family members and fellow volunteers will be soliciting monetary donations from Barrie  residents from Thursday to Sunday at locations around Barrie.
“This important fundraising event is a tradition among fire departments across North America. Part of being a firefighter is helping out the community, giving back as much as possible,” says Barrie firefighter and event organizer Charlie Gray.
“It’s one of the best things about being a firefighter and we love helping out the citizens of Barrie.”
All donations collected during this campaign goes to Muscular Dystrophy Canada and Barrie Fire Community Projects. Barrie Fire Community Projects help various charities, organizations and individuals who are in need of financial assistance.
