On behalf of Local 1014 and the families served by the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), we would like to thank you for your support of our 13th Annual Los Angeles County Local 1014 Fill the Boot to be held on Thursday July9th (B), Friday July 10th (C) and Saturday July 11th (A), 2015. Because of you,Los Angeles County Firefightershaveraised nearly $3,500,000in the last twelveyearsto provide health care and support services to the families served by MDA.
With our participation in events like Fill the Boot, MDA will continue to fund comprehensive healthcare clinics at renowned facilities like Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and UCLA. In addition, MDA will fund life saving research at USC and Cedars Sinai. Last but not least, your support sends children with neuromuscular disease to MDA summer camp. Each and every one of your efforts will not go unnoticed. As the IAFF’s charity of choice for over 60 years, you are a part of the tradition and commitment to the families who live with muscle disease. Your character and dedication to help those in need is what our profession is about.
With the Fire Chief and his Executive Staff’s full support, we need all hands on deck to get our total over $300,000. As in previous years, MDA staff has been conducting station presentations to recruit off-duty site coordinators. There will be one MDA staff or volunteer at each Battalion. We need active firefighter volunteers to give us four hours off-duty so that we can continue to make a difference for our MDA family.
Once again, we would like to thank you in advance for your full participation in our Fill the Boot to help kids and adults live longer and grow stronger. Each year, we participate in many events for the department. Los Angeles County Fire Fighters Local 1014 is proud to Fill the Boot for MDA. This is OUR event and one that is very important to Local 1014 and Firefighters across the county as well as those the Fill the Boot helps. Let’s work together with MDA staff to make sure it’s a safe and successful event.
We have been assured there will be MDA staff at every site to make sure we have a successful event. If you have any issues or problems please contact 1st Vice President Dave Lopez on his cell at (909) 917-6058 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
