See details & register here! Chapter Holiday Party 2016

With the spirit of the season upon us soon, the Chapter will again recognize our many, many blessings by collecting funds to support a local charity - The Backstoppers will be the 2016 recipient.

Started in 1959, The BackStoppers provides 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 in the St. Louis region (including 5 IL counties) who have lost their lives or suffered a catastrophic injury performing their duty. The BackStoppers continues to support the surviving spouse unless or until he or she remarries, and supports the surviving children until they reach age 21 or complete their post-secondary education. The BackStoppers currently supports 81 families with 66 dependent children and has supported 160 families since 1959.

Why not make this a company project to collect money and/or share this opportunity with your employees? Even if you cannot attend the Holiday Party. You can donate online or download a donation form to include with check(s). Please note “NTMA” in the Additional Information section of the form so that Backstoppers can follow the project.
