Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Firefighters will be out in full force this Labor Day weekend as the annual MDA Boot Drive is underway now through September 2nd.
In conjunction with the annual MDA telethon, raising money and awareness for Muscular Dystrophy, Clarksville Fire Rescue personnel will be at Wal-Mart on Fort Campbell Boulevard, Wal-Mart on Madison Street, and Wal-Mart on Wilma Rudolph Boulevard, Kroger on Dover Crossing Road, Kroger on Lowes Drive, Kroger and Dollar General Market on Madison Street, and Big Lots on South Riverside Drive in Clarksville collecting money from 11:00am to 3:00pm.
This is the first year that firefighters have been allowed to be at locations raising money, after city officials determined that it wasn’t a conflict of interest for them to do so.
For over 59 years, firefighters and MDA have partnered to fight neuromuscular diseases.
