Montecito Off-Duty Firefighters to ‘Fill the Boot’ for Muscular Dystrophy Association

Firefighters of the Montecito Fire Protection District will participate in a fundraising endeavor called Fill the Boot for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA)

The annual donation drive celebrates its 60th anniversary this year.

Throughout the six-decade evolution of the drive, members of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) across the United States and Canada have continually strengthened the Fill the Boot campaign.

Today, IAFF is the MDA's single-largest fundraising partner and most ardent crusader to find a cure for neuromuscular disease.   

The off duty Montecito firefighters will Fill the Boot from 8:30 a.m. until early afternoon Saturday, Dec. 5, 2015, at the intersection of Coast Village Road and Olive Mill Road.  

All proceeds will be donated to the MDA. Please come out to support this worthy cause.

Joyce Reed is an administrative assistant for the Montecito Fire Protection District.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
