Some local firefighters had an extra pair of boots with them today, but not for wearing, for collecting.
Collecting as much money as possible that is.
The Sault Ste. Marie Professional Firefighters Association were out front of the Canadian Tire store all day Friday for their annual boot drive. The fundraising effort for Muscular Dystrophy and other local charities raises about $5,000 in a day said Chris Plotycia, SSMPFFA MD Chair.
The local firefighters have raised an impressive $275,000 with their long standing boot drives since 1972.
