Huntington Volunteer Fire Company members held a boot drive on both Huntington and Church streets, near the fire station, on Saturday.

Firefighters collected donations from passing motorists to help the fire company, one of four all-volunteer fire departments that serve Shelton.

Many motorists slowed down to put cash in the black boots held by firefighters standing alongside the road.
