COLUMBIA — Harpo's Bar & Grill will set firefighter's boots at its front and atrium bars Thursday evening.

Harpo's is encouraging customers to drop donations into the boots, an effort to honor Lt. Bruce Britt, the Columbia firefighter who died when a walkway collapsed at MU's University Village apartments.

The funds raised will be matched to support the Missouri Children's Burn Camp, according to a release from Harpo's.

The boots will be out from 3 p.m. until Harpo's 1 a.m. closing, manager Miranda Shaw said.

Harpo's is located at 29 S. Tenth St. in downtown Columbia.

Supervising editor is Allie Hinga.
