Local fire department asks community to 'Fill the Boot'


Stevens Point firefighters are reaching out to the community.

Thursday marked the fire department's annual Fill the Boot charity event. The event, in its 6th year, helps raise money for muscular dystrophy. Firefighters says the charity is close to their heart because the proceeds stay close to home.

"One of the reasons we find it so dear is because it keeps the money in Portage County," says Tom Wastart of the Stevens Point Fire Department. "The money we raised stays in Portage County to help our local families that have a type of M.D."

The event continues Friday from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.
