BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – Boardman firefighters held their annual boot drive along South Avenue on Sunday.

Proceeds from the drive benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The International Firefighters Association is one of the largest national contributors to the MDA.

“People see us all the time driving around in the truck. Now they get an opportunity they can stop and give us a couple dollars to put towards the MDA. We appreciate the community’s support, anything from change to any money they want to give, we greatly appreciate,” said Cory Hinderliter with Boardman Local 1176.

They said it is one of their biggest public interactions of the year.

Firefighters were on South Avenue and Matthews Street from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
