Firefighters Collect for MDA

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): It’s a tradition. Fighters and filling the boot. They’ll be out over the next couple days around Fort Wayne collecting for MDA.

You can find them at intersections taking contributions.

They’ve been doing it for more than 16 years, and say a few coins add up.

Many of the individuals they encounter have been saving up their spare change all year.

Last year more than 81 thousand dollars was donated.
