Please be careful around the major intersections, members of the Duluth and Superior Fire Departments are there for the annual Fill the Boot fundraising campaign to help the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) find urgently needed treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that severely limit strength and mobility.

MDA’s spirited Fill the Boot campaign is an honored tradition in which thousands of dedicated fire fighters in hometowns across America hit the streets or storefronts asking pedestrians, motorists, customers and other passersby to make a donation to MDA, using their collective strength to help kids and adults live longer and grow stronger. The Firefighters will be darting in and out of traffic. When you see the signs or the guys, don't stop right away, you will cause a wreck. They are asking you do it while you are stopped. If the light doesn't turn red while you are at the corner, maybe put over or turn around and pull up again. Have your money ready and they will take it as fast as they can.

If you have already given, do nothing, wave and smile. They don't want to pressure you.

So here are the corners in the Twin Ports the Firefighters will be collecting at:

  • BELKNAP AVENUE & TOWER AVENUE
  • 37TH STREET & TOWER AVENUE
  • 22ND AVENUE EAST & EAST 2ND STREET
  • LAKE AVENUE & RAILROAD STREET
  • CENTRAL ENTRANCE & ARLINGTON AVENUE
  • GRAND AVENUE & CENTRAL AVENUE
  • WOODLAND AVENUE & ARROWHEAD AVENUE
  • IN GARY
