Members of the Bossier City Fire Department will be out this Labor Day weekend asking you to help them in the fight against neuromuscular disease.
The firefighters will be taking part in their traditional Fill the Boot campaign to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. They will be stationed daily at several intersections including Barksdale Blvd. and Westgate Lane as well as East Texas St. and Airline Dr. from 9 a.m. until 1p.m through Monday.

The money raised will go toward funding research, sending children to MDA summer camp and purchasing equipment such as wheel chairs and walkers for victims of neuromuscular disease.
