Money collected for MDA will provide services and clinics for more than 250 Alaska families. Checks will be accepted and can be made payable to MDA, Alaska Chapter. Central Emergency Services firefighters' "Fill-the-Boot" campaign will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and Saturday at the Soldotna "Y" intersection.
