Letter: Firefighters offer thanks for fundraising support

Dear Editor,

On Sept. 16, 17, and 18, Township of Langley firefighters once again held out their boots to show their support for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

And once again, the community’s response was overwhelming!

Residents donated $50,233.40 to help “make muscles move” and improve the quality of life for those living with neuromuscular disorders.

Because of you, every year we exceed expectations.

We are extremely grateful to those who contributed, and to the businesses that kindly allowed us to hold the fundraiser at their locations.

Township firefighters are very proud to be a part of this giving and generous community and we would like to thank everyone who supported the 2016 Muscular Dystrophy Boot Drive.

Township of Langley Firefighters

Note: Langley City firefighters will be holding their Boot Drive on Sept. 24 from 9-4 p.m. at the Safeway on 208th Street and at Tim Hortons on Logan Avenue.
