The BackStoppers serves 18 counties in Missouri and Illinois.Because the region served by BackStoppers extends beyond St. Louis, we rely on groups of supporters who volunteer their time to help raise awareness of and funds for our mission in the outlying counties of our coverage area. These groups, called Outlying County Supporter Groups, are integral to the growth of our cause. In July, one such group called the BackStoppers of Monroe County presented over $30,000 to BackStoppers!

This generous support comes from the annual fundraising events held by Monroe Countyincluding a highly anticipated Trivia Night, Brat Stop and more. During Monroe County’s fourteen year history, they have contributed over $300,000 towards our mission! We would like to recognize and thank the committee members, volunteers and first responders that work very hard to make this incredible support and awareness happen. We will feature more on Monroe County and their efforts in the upcoming BackStoppers print newsletter mailing later this year!
