FLFD “Fill The Boot” Fundraiser – GARLAND COUNTY

Arkansas Tax Free Weekend Announced, learn more here.

Fountain Lake Fire Troops Melissa Campbell, Mike Rigsby, Holly Harvey, Nicholas Richardson, Harry Baker and Charlotte Ledbetter held a “Fill The Boot” fundraising event last weekend at the Walmart Super Center on Highway 7 North.

The goal for this fundraiser was to bring in money to purchase new turn out gear (the firefighter suits) that will replace the already out of date gear that some of the FLFD Firefighters are currently wearing.  The lifespan of these suits are 10 years.

A table was set up near the entrance to the store where the FLFD Heroes handed out little fire hats and goodie bags to the kids that passed by and made everyone else aware of the need to fill the fireman’s boot with cash.

And, the flaming tootoos they are wearing in the pics were hand made by Charlotte.

FLFD says “thank you” to the community for supporting their fill the boot operation!
