Schnucks Selling CDs to Benefit St. Louis BackStoppers

ST. LOUIS - All 64 St. Louis Metropolitan area Schnucks stores are selling a special music CD in which 100% of sales will go to the BackStoppers. For $20, music lovers will not only receive "Someone To Watch Over Me: The BackStoppers Project" CD with music donated by several local artists, they will also provide support for the families of firefighters, police officers and EMTs who sacrifice their lives in the line of duty.

Customers can find the CD display at the customer service desk at each Schnucks store with music from many local favorites including Ralph Butler, Anita Rosamond, Mark Christoper, Denice Thimes, Jim Manley, Jeanne Trevor and several more.

In addition to all sales going to the BackStoppers, all proceeds will be matched dollar for dollar during the ongoing David Pratt $1,000,000 Challenge Gift Campaign.

Founded in 1959, the BackStoppers is a non-profit association of civic-minded men and women in the St. Louis area and neighboring counties in Missouri and Illinois. Their mission is to provide support and financial assistance to the spouses and children of all local and county police officers, firefighters, publicly-funded paramedics and EMTS and volunteer fire protection units, who have lost their lives performing their duty.
