Fill The Boot 2015

It’s that time of the year again and we’re gearing up for a strong start and record finish.

This year’s MDA Fill the Boot Drive will have six different dates at four locations to ensure you have an opportunity to do your part. We’ve improved the scheduling, T-shirt shortage problems, and upgraded the equipment.

We’re kicking it off on June 5th and have scheduled days during which, in past drives, we’ve hit the mother lode so to speak – both in participation and collection.

The site coordinators are again Dave Musselman for Poulsbo, Alex Hickey for North Kitsap, and Chad Gillespie for Central Kitsap. Let them know on which date you’re planning to participate.

When & Where:

June 5th from 2:00pm – 6:00pm at Silverdale Way and Ridgetop Blvd

June 7th from 2:00pm – 6:00pm at Lindvog Rd Ne and SR 104

July 12th from 2:00pm – 6:00pm at Lindvog Rd Ne and SR 104

July 17th from 1:00pm – 5:00pm at Viking Way and Finn Hill Rd

July 24th from 2:00pm – 6:00pm at Silverdale Way and Ridgetop Blvd
