City Firefighters Hit the Streets for Final Day of Fill the Boot Fundraising Campaign

Collection Date Scheduled for Friday, April 22

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Corpus Christi Fire Department (CCFD) and Corpus Christi Professional Firefighter Association’s annual Fill the Boot campaign continues with one remaining collection date scheduled for Friday, April 22. Donations from the campaign benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

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 $120,000 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 Corpus Christi Fire Department hopes to raise at least $100,000 for this year’s campaign.
