Fill the Boot campaign in Portales a roaring success

There are no words to describe the generosity of the Portales citizens who contributed to the Muscular Dystrophy Association through the Fill the Boot Campaign on Aug. 6, 2013.

The Portales Fire Department’s Fill the Boot campaign raised $4,714 this year.

In part, this will help fund MDA’s worldwide research program. However, the revenue also helps send local children with muscular Letter-to-the-EditorSqaredystrophy to MDA summer camp at no cost to their families.

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to the city of Portales for its continued support of MDA and Fill the Boot.

Of course, the biggest thanks of all goes out to the true heroes of our community, Portales firefighters. Their hard work and dedication, along with the generosity of the citizens of Portales, will be of great value to the local families that rely on MDA for vital services and support.
