The American Red Cross and Rapides Parish Fire District Two are raising money this week during their annual 'Boot Shake' fundraiser.

Firefighters are lining the intersection in front of Books A Million, raising money for the Red Cross.

The firefighters will be back Wednesday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. for the last day of the fundraiser.

District Chief Stevie L. Mitchell says it's all about raising money for a good cause and keeping the community safe.

"It's very important because we're out here giving our time and helping, helping out those people that are in need of the Red Cross and it goes right to our local community."

All the money raised will go directly to the American Red Cross.

The fundraiser is held every year in November.
