    Good question, Jeff. Boot drive (I had to ask): Firefighters man the streets, empty boots in hand. You fill the boots with donations …

    I looked it up online and, apparently, a boot drive is “The disk drive that contains the operating system.” So look for the guys holding a computer’s internal hard drive, and put some cash in it (but no coins, they may short the circuit boards.)
