Proceeds from April 6 event benefit the Burn Institute
April 6, 2011 (San Diego) -- Local firefighters take to the streets today for the 12th Annual Firefighter Boot Drive -- a countywide effort to support the Burn Institute.
The Boot Drive began as a grassroots effort backed by the fire service and has been going strong for more than a decade. It is now a hallmark fundraiser for the Burn Institute. In 2010, more than $210,000 was raised for the organization. Scroll down for a list of locations where firefighters will be asking the public to "fil the boot."
