Baldwin City Fire Department Annual Boot Block for MDA

Baldwin City Fire and Rescue hosted their annual Boot Block Saturday, August 27th to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Firefighters were stationed at the intersection of Ames (Highway 56) and 6th Street and on 8th Street near the Baldwin City Market where passers-by could drop cash and change in a fire boot without leaving their vehicles. Everything from pennies to fifty dollar bills were collected and will be donated to MDA. This year was one of the best yet with over $3,000 collected. Several of the firefighter's wives and children helped out with the event to make it a family affair. Chief Terry Baker said "I'm very thankful for the firefighters and their families for all their help and to the citizens whose generous donations make this charity possible".
