Firefighters in Summit Township are proving this week that they’re willing to fight more than just fires.
The Summit Jackson Firefighters Local 1306 is partnering with the Muscular Dystrophy Association from Wednesday through Friday to kick off the 65th annual Fill the Boot campaign.
Members of the union plan to gather at the corner of West Michigan Avenue and Brown Street in Jackson from 11 a.m to 2 p.m. to collect donations from motorists. The starting location is about a block south of the Walmart at 1700 W. Michigan Ave. All funds raised will support the Muscular Dystrophy Association mission to accelerate treatments and cures, organizers said in a press release. That includes developing support groups, building care centers and sending affected children to outdoor summer camps for therapy.
