Sherman Firefighters "Pass the Boot" for Colleague

Posted: Updated:

SHERMAN, TX--Tax free shoppers may have ran into the fire department at the Sherman Town Center Saturday, but nothing was on fire.

The Sherman Fire Department held its annual Fill the Boot fundraiser Saturday. Money raised goes to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. 

This is their third year to ask passing drivers to put a little change into their boots.

It's something that hits close to home for these firefighters. 
"One of our longtime men, his son has muscular dystrophy, so that just--every city does this--every fire department across the state and countrywide do this, but it's just a little more meaningful to us to be able to see and just know exactly where the money goes," Billy Hartsfield said, Sherman Firefighter.

The Sherman Fire Department hopes to raise $5,000.
