Griffin and Levi Support The BackStoppers!

Griffin and LeviOn a hot Saturday in early September, 5-year old Griffin put on his police officer uniform, loaded up his patrol car, and set out for Frontier Park with 2-year old brother, Levi.  Together the boys spent the day selling ice cream to raise funds for BackStoppers.  Their hard work paid off.  By the end of the day, they had raised a total $401.oo for the families of fallen heroes!

Griffin and Levi visited our office to present Executive Director Chief Ron Battelle and St. Charles Police Chief Randy McKindley with their donation.  They dressed for the occasion in their police officer and firefighter uniforms.  When Chief McKinley asked the boys who came up with the idea for the fundraiser, Griffin said it had been his idea.  He had come up with the idea on his own and, with Levi, had a lot of fun selling ice cream in the park.
