ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Backstoppers is partnering with a local car dealership to raise as much money as possible for the family of fallen St. Louis County Police Officer Blake Snyder.
The group announced it’s holding a “matching gift event” this Friday. First responders will circulate The Hill neighborhood putting “Boots on the Ground” to collect donations. Don Brown Chevrolet has agreed to match any donation up to 10-thousand dollars. That means $5 becomes $10, $500 becomes $1,000 and $10,000 becomes $20,000.
Those who don’t come across a first responder in The Hill can stop by Don Brown with cash or check, or they can call or head online to donate directly to Backstoppers.
