Parksville — Local firefighters would like to thank the community for their amazing support during their boot drive on Saturday, June 18.
The firefighters spent a few hours canvassing and were overwhelmed by the generosity of the public and their sponsors.
Special thank yous go out to Thrifty Foods for providing a location for the event, Lefty’s Restaurant for supplying coffee throughout the day, and the Parksville residents and visitors.
The event raised $1,681 and these funds will be donated to improve the quality of life for people living with neuromuscular disorders by purchasing mobility equipment, providing support services, and funding research, which will one day lead to a cure.
Without the kindness of the Parksville community, the firefighters would not be able to support such a worthwhile cause.
