Since 1999, the San Angelo Fire Department and the San Angelo Firefighters Association has been fundraising for the Muscular Dystrophy Association raising approximately $50,000 annually.
Like in years past, motorists drop dollar bills and loose change into the firefighters’ rubber boots.
Firefighters will be at four main intersections around San Angelo to collect donations. The intersections are:
– 29th Street and North Bryant Boulevard
– Abe and Harris Streets
– Johnson Street and Knickerbocker Road
– Sherwood Way and Avenue N
Firefighters will be collecting funds from 7:30 am until 5:30 pm each day from Wednesday through Friday.
The city of San Angelo would like to remind motorists to help protect the firefighters by slowing down when approaching intersections, and to watch for any first-responders in the streets. In addition to being aware of cars braking in front of them.
