Kiddie Academy Makes a Big Difference

Our little friends at Kiddie Academy in O’Fallon made a big difference when they presented BackStoppers with a check of $1,000 from their Student Art Show. We were honored to accept this generous donation. We would like to thank the staff at Kiddie Academy for their diligent and hard work that went into the Art Show, the parents of the students for giving so generously toward our mission and the students who created the art to support our community. A special thanks to the Wentzville Fire Department and O’Fallon Police Department for taking the time to brighten the students’ day!

We could not do what we do without the continued support from the community. Every single donation is a vital part of carrying out our mission of assisting families of fallen first responders. To learn more about how you can make a difference visit: https://backstoppers.org/
