The Grand Junction Fire Department was sent on a different assignment Saturday.
A handful of the firefighters were out at the City Market on Rood Avenue collecting money for their annual Fill the Boot Fundraiser. The money raised benefits the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Firefighters all over the country participate in the fundraiser every Labor Day Weekend. And for the Grand Junction Fire Department, it's another way for them to get involved in the community.
The firefighters will be out again Sunday at City Market's and Wal – Mart's around the area. If you can't get out to donate, you can contact the fire stations.
