FORSYTH COUNTY — Forsyth County firefighters will begin their annual boot drive this month.

Department personnel will man several major intersections throughout the county on the first three Saturdays in May.

“We are certainly appreciative of the support the annual boot drive receives,” said Fire Chief Danny Bowman.

More than 100 fire departments across the state will collect money for the “Give Burns the Boot Drive” to benefit the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation.

Donations collected will be used for fire safety and prevention education, support of medical facilities and to assist burn survivors in their recovery.

Money will also go to Camp Oo-U-La, which is held specifically for Georgia children with burn injuries.

Those who would like to make a donation online can do so at www.giveburnstheboot.org.
