City Firefighters Hit the Streets to Fill the Boot for a Worthy Cause

Annual Campaign Raises Money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Corpus Christi Fire Department’s (CCFD) annual Fill the Boot campaign kicks off this Friday, March 11, and continues each Friday for the next three weeks. The money raised from the campaign benefits the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

Firefighters will be at intersections in various parts of the City including:

  • Padre Island/ Flour Bluff
  • Calallen/Annaville
  • Six Points/Downtown
  • Staples Street/Saratoga Boulevard/Holly Road/Greenwood Drive
  • Several locations along SPID

Firefighters will collect donations during morning and afternoon shifts. The CCFD reminds drivers to be cautious and keep their eyes on the road during the campaign.

In 2019, the CCFD raised $115,000 for the annual campaign, but the COVID-19 pandemic cut short collections in 2020, and there was no Fill the Boot campaign scheduled in 2021. The CCFD hopes to raise at least $100,000 for this year’s campaign.
