It's that time of year....time for Midland and Odessa Fire Department's Fill the Boot campaign!

Day 2 kicked off with a bang this morning and since it is an annual event going 60 years strong, we urge you to participate. This particular fundraising event is near and dear to my heart because my daddy was a firefighter for over 10 years. When I hear it's 'Fill the Boot' time I'm looking for the firefighters to do my part and help raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association or MDA. The money raised benefits children and adults affected by muscle disease throughout the West Texas and Permian Basin area.

Look for firefighters to help Fill the Boot at these intersections on May 7th, 8th and 9th:

Midland: (Collecting between 9:00am-6:00pm)
