During the month of September, the five Pasco County Tax Collector Offices accepted donations on behalf of the Firefighters Charities of Pasco’s Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Boot Drive. Traditionally, over the past six decades, firefighters have stood on street corners, fire boot in hand, to collect donations from cars passing by. Breaking with tradition, the Pasco County Tax Collector’s Offices have been donation sites for those who want to support this worthy cause. 2021 is the second year the tax collector has participated in this charitable giving drive.
“Last year our generous customers donated over $2,000 to the Firefighters Charities of Pasco’s efforts to raise money to fight this disease,” comments Tax Collector Mike Fasano. “This year our staff and customers raised over $2,800 to help the MDA fund its 150 research projects around the world. Thank you to everyone who stopped by one of our offices to donate in support of this great cause.”
The Pasco County Tax Collector’s Office holds charity-of-the-month and other charitable giving events throughout the year to help people in our community who are most in need. For information about the charitable giving program please contact Assistant Tax Collector Greg Giordano at (727) 847-8179 or visit the website www.pascotaxes.com .
