Woodard Cleaning & Restoration just wrapped up its 2nd annual raffle fundraiser in support of The BackStoppers, Inc. Last year, the organization raised just over $29,000 for The BackStoppers. This year, Woodard increased its fundraising goal and was able to raise an incredible $37,000.00 through the support of its staff, first responders, local vendors, and the community. This year’s raffle was made possible through generous sponsorships provided by Home Is Where The Art Is, Art and Frame Restoration.com, Central Station Marketing, Universal Creative Concepts, Summit Marketing, GVL Plumbing, CRDN of Greater St. Louis, CliftonLarsonAllen, E.J. Welch, Beck Disposal, Peerless Cleaners, Home Depot, March & McLennan Agency, Enterprise Fleet, and Jon-Don. In correspondence with this annual raffle, Woodard also sponsors the annual St. Louis Guns ‘N Hoses event at a high level. Woodard’s mission statement is “Helping people get back to their lives,” and it is vastly important to the organization to support The BackStoppers and Guns ‘N Hoses as a way to thank local first responders for what they do every day for our community.
