"To me, it's a wonderful way to give back to the community."

Throughout Labor Day weekend, firefighters all over the country have been filling their boots, with donations for muscular dystrophy.

Today, the Saint John's Fire Department was at the local Walmart, asking community members to help them raise money for the disease.

We caught up with one of the captains, and asked about his favorite part of the fundraiser.

"To me, it's a wonderful way to give back to the community.
Just seeing the kids light up when they see a firefighter here, giving them little stickers. Little paper stickers and they are thrilled to get them. It's a wonderful thing to see a smiling kids face," said Capt. Louis Evans, St. Johns Fire Department.

All money raised by the firefighters will stay in Clinton County, and go to families fighting muscular dystrophy.
