This week members of the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, along with the rest of the world, watched devastation unfold in Texas. We knew that we wanted to do something to help. The staff at the Greater Washington Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and National MDA also felt that need. With that in mind a recommendation was made that, for municipalities interested, a portion of “Fill the Boot” money should go to a disaster relief fund.
After consultation with representatives from both the Greater Washington and National MDA, the decision has been made that $50,000 of the 2017 Fairfax County Fill the Boot campaign donations will go toward a disaster relief fund.
