SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Rincon Fire Department will be at the intersection of Fort Howard Road and Highway 21 to raise money for its annual Fill the Boot drive to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The department will be at the intersection from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.

Last year, they raised $4,800 for MDA. This year's goal is to raise $6,000.

One benefit of firefighters' efforts is MDA Summer Camp, where campers from ages 6 to 17 take a week-long trip to the New Ebenezer Retreat Center. Firefighters visited the camp this summer.
