Fire departments' boot drive raises over $6,000
Members of the Jaffray and Baynes Lake Fire Departments had their boots in hand over the Labour Day Weekend for the annual Muscular Dystrophy Boot Drive.
“The boot drive was once again a huge success, raising is $6037.01 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association of BC,” said Jaffray Baynes Lake Fire Chief, Dave Boreen.
The Jaffray and Baynes Lake Departments have been holding Boot Drives for several years, and were once again set up at the Kikomun Road 4-Corners on the Saturday of Labour Day weekend.
Since 2006, the Department has raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
“This fundraiser gives our volunteers an opportunity to get out in the community and raise funds for a really important cause. We are so grateful for the support we receive each year.”
The firefighters will be out and about the community again this weekend during the Jaffray Fall Fair where they’ll be hosting an open house from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
