The NMPFFA works with MDA all over New Mexico to improve our members involvement, increase the donations collected from the community and send our own fire fighters to MDA Camp as counselors for kids with muscular dystrophy. Fire fighters have long had a special relationship with the Muscular Dystrophy Association. This year the Albuquerque Fire Fighters raised $53,108, Bernalillo County Fire Fighters giving them hell by raising $21,863, double from last year. Up north, Santa Fe Local 2059 raised $13,000, Los Alamos Local 3276 improved to $5,000. Farmington raised $9,600. Some Locals are not participating, often because their city won't allow them to stand on the street and collect because of misapplication of anti-panhandling laws. These can be temporarily waived during the Fill the Boot campaign! The NMPFFA will assist your Local in working with your government to find a way to allow you to participate. Contact us for ideas. We also have applications for Camp Counselors which should be submitted by early spring.
