The Brighton Fire Department held a “Boot Drive” fundraiser on Saturday to benefit the families of the firefighters killed and injured in the tragedy Christmas Eve in West Webster.
The drive was held at the 12 Corners in Brighton from 9 a.m. To 1 p.m.
People driving by were encouraged to donate whatever they could. Even people walking by could help out by dropping some loose change or a few bucks in the fire boots as they passed by.
Brighton Fire Chief Stephen MacAdam told News10NBC that Saturday was not only about them and the support they get from the community, but it was also about remembering those affected by the tragedy in Webster.
