Traditional Fill the Boot

The COVID-19 pandemic dramatically affected fire fighters’ efforts to Fill the Boot for MDA in 2020. In 2021, we are already hearing from many more Locals/Depts planning to conduct traditional Fill the Boot drives. To help you prepare, we have put together a toolkit of information that is specific to COVID-19. We ask that you adhere to local public health guidelines and focus on safety for everyone involved.

Social Distancing Approved Options

If your Local isn't able to do a traditional collection at intersections or storefronts, we have identified two options that have been successful. Parking Lot Collections and Drive Thru Fill the Boot Collections are able to be done with social distancing and still allow your Local to raise funds for MDA.
