Dave and Christine share how important it is to share the mission of BackStoppers in Perry County, “In smaller more rural communities like ours, residents are very likely to personally know some, if not most of their first responders. These personal relationships make the mission of BackStoppers profoundly more personal, meaningful, and imperative. All first responders deal with the risks of their job every day. They deserve the support of their communities and the people they serve. BackStoppers allows a smaller, less populated community to ensure an elevated level of support that would likely not be attainable on a local basis, regardless of the level of support and generosity of a community.”
We are honored to have Dave, Christine and the BackStoppers of Perry County, Illinois committee as part of our mission. Their hearts and generous spirits are what keep our mission active. We look forward to seeing everything Perry County has in store for BackStoppers!
