Palm Beach County firefighters and paramedics reboot fund drive to Publix

PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. –You could be greeted by a firefighter when shopping at Publix over the Labor Day weekend.

Because of a panhandling ban, firefighters with IAFF Local 2928 won’t be soliciting donations for its annual Muscular Dystrophy Association Boot Drive on street corners. But they reached an agreement with Publix to stand in front of stores from Friday morning through Sunday.

Firefighters hope to raise at least $100,000 for as many as 500 local families.

The funds are to be used for health clinic visits, medical supplies, summer camps, family support and research.
