Monrovia VFD is holding “Boot Drive” to raise funds for new medical vehicles
MADISON COUNTY, Ala. – The Monrovia Volunteer Fire Department is raising funds for the purchase of new medical vehicles through a so-called “Boot Drive”.
The event is a fundraiser that encourages motorists at two intersections in the area to toss change into a firefighter’s boot. All funds will go towards the department’s $ 46,000 goal.
The two intersections where donations are accepted are Capshaw Road and Wall Triana Highway, and Jeff Road and Mt. Zion Road.
Donations will be accepted at these locations on Saturday, September 18, from 7.30 a.m. to 2.00 p.m.
“Every year Monrovia Fire volunteers respond to nearly 2,000 emergency calls in their district,” the department said in a statement. “This fundraiser is intended to help update the current aging vehicle fleet.”
Donations can also be made directly to the department, via Facebook or PayPal.
Further information on the upcoming “Boot Drive” and the entire department can be found at monroviafire.org.
