Members of the Camden and Lugoff fire departments, along with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), honored their 60-year partnership with the firefighters’ annual “Fill the Boot” fundraising campaign Labor Day weekend to benefit children and adults affected by muscle disease throughout Kershaw County. Camden Fire Department (CFD) Lt. Chris Tidwell helped organize this year’s successful MDA Boot Drive along with the continued support of MDA Columbia. Firefighters from the Camden and Lugoff fire departments partnered together to raise $19,518 for MDA, far surpassing their total from 2013 of $14,568 by almost $5,000.
