Local 1014 members,

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 upcoming annual Los Angeles County Local 1014 Fill the Boot to be held on Thursday June 28th (B), Friday June 29th (C) and Saturday June 30th (A), 2018. Because of you, Los Angeles County Firefighters have raised over $3,500,000 since we began the Fill the Boot campaign many years ago. These donations have been used to provide health care and support services to the families served by MDA. In the 64 years the members of the IAFF have raised over $630,000,000

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 lifesaving 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 $200,000. There will be at least one MDA staff person or volunteer at each Battalion collection site. Supplies have already been delivered to the Battilion HQ stations.

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 that the Fill the Boot  campaign 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 Morse on his cell at (626) 672-5219 or by email at dmorse@local1014.org, Andy Doyle (562) 307-7045 or email at andydoyle@local1014.org or Jason Cervantes (951) 830-7963 or email at jcervantes@local1014.org.

Fraternally,

Your Local 1014 Executive Board
