Firefighters Raise Money for MDA

EUGENE, Ore. — Springfield, Eugene, and South Lane County firefighters all combined efforts Friday to battle a big opponent: muscular dystrophy.

They’re taking part in the Fill-the-Boot drive, asking drivers to drop cash into fire boots to support local families.

The firefighters hope to raise a combined $30,000 Friday.

This is the first of two drives happening this summer.

Last year the fire crews raised a combined $54,000.
