West Star is proud to support and donate to The BackStoppers for the local Guns ‘N Hoses annual event. This year, the organization sold apparel at the ALN hangar to raise additional awareness and donations.
Each year for the past three, West Star has contributed to the support of the event and organization involved. This year they were able to present a $5,000 donation to The BackStoppers. Founded in 1959, BackStoppers provides ongoing needed financial assistance and support to the spouses and dependent children of all police officers, firefighters and volunteer firefighters, and publicly funded paramedics and EMTs who have lost their lives in the line of duty in 18 counties in Missouri and Illinois. BackStoppers also provides assistance to first responders who suffer a catastrophic injury performing their duty.
“We are proud to be able to continue to support such an amazing organization, while also involving the participation of our team members,” said Amber Kasting, West Star HR Manager, Midwest Region.
