Burn Institute: Countywide Firefighter Boot Drive
SAN DIEGO -- On Thursday, March 9th, 2017 local firefighters will take to the streets for the Burn Institute’s 18th Annual “Fill the Boot for the Burn Institute” Firefighter Boot Drive.
Proceeds benefit the Burn Institute’s fire and burn prevention programs and burn survivor support services such as Camp Beyond the Scars for burn-injured children.
Sponsored by the San Diego–Imperial County Fire Fighters Advisory Council to the Burn Institute and the San Diego County Fire Chiefs’ Association, the Burn Institute’s 18th Annual Firefighter Boot Drive is the organization’s largest one-day fundraiser.
All of the funds raised through the Boot Drive will stay locally here in San Diego County. As always, the top fire department from each region will win the Burn Institute’s highly-coveted bronze Boot Drive trophy, as well as the much sought-after bragging rights.
