“Fill the Boot” drive tomorrow at Bemidji Brewing

Local firefighters will hold the annual Fill the Boot Drive tomorrow outside Bemidji Brewing.

According to a release, the Professional Firefighters Association Local 2302 will continue this long-standing tradition to raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association to accelerate research and advance care.

Firefighters will have boots in hand asking customers and other passersby to donate to the cause.

The partnership between the International Association of Fire Fighters and the MDA began in 1954, and has since raised $679 million.

The fundraiser in Bemidji is from 4 to 8 at Bemidji Brewing, near the intersection of 2nd St. NW and America Ave. NW.

Bemidji Brewing is also offering commemorative pint glasses for their community spotlight night.
