Burnaby firefighters hold boot drive Nov. 16-17

Burnaby firefighters will be hitting the streets Nov. 16 and 17 for its annual Fire Fighters Boot Drive for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

Burnaby Fire Fighters, Local 323, will be holding out their boots for donations on Friday, Nov. 16, 5 to 9 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 17, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. They'll be at several locations in both North and South Burnaby including the BC Liquor stores (Willingdon and Hastings, Brentwood Town Centre, High Gate Shopping Centre, and Lougheed), Safeway at Willingdon and Hastings, Costco Wholesale at Still Creek Avenue and Brighton Avenue, Kensington Square Plaza, Metropolis at Metrotown and Lougheed Mall.

Last year, across Canada, firefighters raised $2.9 million for the cause, which fights against neuromuscular disorders by supporting research, education, services and equipment. Of that $30,000 came from Burnaby firefighters.
