If you are interested in a way to help the Backstoppers program, which provides funds to families that have a Police Officer or Firefighter fatally injured in the line of duty, purchase a Holiday Christmas Ornament which depicts a firefighter or police officer.
Maria Blankenship has spearheaded the program through Union Furniture, 21 South Washington, Union.
“The ornaments are for sale at a donation price of $9, with all proceeds benefiting the Backstoppers program,” said Blankenship. “My husband Travis, a Franklin County Sheriff’s Deputy and I have become very involved in Backstoppers program and here at Union Furniture we are the purchase location for Franklin County.”
Blankenship stated that anyone with questions on how to purchase the Holiday ornaments may do so by contacting her at Union Furniture at 636-583-3133.
