Boot Drive

2014 Boot Drive Recap

Thousands of firefighters volunteer every year to collect money in their boots during the annual Firefighters “Fill the Boot for Burns” Boot Drive fundraisers for the Firefighters Burn Institute.

Donations are used to improve burn treatment and to fund life-altering burn recovery programs, including Firefighters Kids Camp for young burn survivors and the new Little Heroes Preschool Burn Camp.

Over 60 fire agencies throughout Northern and Central California host a Boot Drive fundraiser to help make a positive difference in the lives of burn survivors and fellow firefighters.

In 2014, our goal was to raise over one half million dollars to support burn programs and a new regional burn center. See how much we raised last year in 2013!
