bcfd_patch_plasticMembers of the Bossier City Fire Department will be out this Labor Day weekend asking folks to help them in the fight against neuromuscular disease.

The firefighters will be taking part in their traditional Fill the Boot campaign to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. They will be stationed daily at several intersections including Barksdale Boulevard and Westgate Lane as well as East Texas Street and Airline Drive from 9 a.m. until 1p.m today through Monday.

The money raised will go toward funding research, sending children to MDA summer camp and purchasing equipment such as wheel chairs and walkers for victims of neuromuscular disease.
