For the second year in a row, Brentwood Fire and Rescue personnel participated in the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s “Fill the Boot” campaign. Local grocery stores and shops were once again transformed into busy donation centers all with a common purpose of making a difference.
Last year the department collected one of the highest totals in Middle Tennessee with an impressive $7,157. Because of these impressive totals, Brentwood was challenged to step it up this year. Once again, Brentwood Fire and Rescue delivered with a grand total of $10,400!
The collection period culminated with a charity softball game contested between the Police and Fire Departments on Saturday Sept 3rd at Granny White Park. Despite it being one of the hottest days this summer, a great time was had by all, with the Police “Guns” coming out a 9 – 5 winner over the Fire “Hoses.” Despite the loss on the field, it is no doubt the Hoses and MDA came out winners in the long run.

The stated goal for donations this year was $8,000. Due to the generosity of the community, Brentwood Fire and Rescue was able to beat that goal by over $2,400!
Brentwood Fire and Rescue would like to thank the community for going that extra mile to help make this fundraiser such a success. A special thanks also goes out to the Police Department for being such strong competitors. Hopefully we’ll get to even the score next year!
