Town of Batavia firefighters are holding a boot drive Saturday to benefit the West Webster Fire Department and the families and victims of the Christmas Eve ambush of first responders in Webster.
Firefighters Mike Chiapperini and Tomasz Kaczowka were killed in the attack and Joseph Hofsetter and Theodore Scardino were injured.
The boot drive is being organized by Josh Finn with the help of other Batavia volunteers. Residents are asked to drive by the fire hall on Lewiston Road (across from Kmart/Tops Plaza) on Saturday and drop donations into a firefighter's boot.
The drive is from 10 a.m to 2 p.m.
