Fill the Boot campaign a success

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -  All they needed was a few bucks in their boots and this weekend, Nacogdoches Fire Fighters filled the boots with more than $5,500.

Nac Fire fighter Cody Best says on Friday alone, they raised almost $3,000.

They chose tax-free weekend on purpose and it turned out to be a good move.

Best says once they make their bank deposit, they will know exactly how much money they raised because they are letting the bank count all the coins.
