Meals for Shields

We are partnering with Paddy O’s to provide an opportunity for the community to purchase and share a meal and have a conversation with the first responders who serve our neighborhood at Paddy O’s on Wednesday, November 22 anytime from 2-7pm.

Click here to purchase a meal. Proceeds raised beyond the costs to prepare the meals will be donated to BackStoppers.

Paddy O’s will also be providing a complementary shuttle to/from Scottrade Center for Guns ‘n Hoses, and there will be drink specials during the event.

We will also be conducting a Meals for Shields program for the holidays in December, stay tuned for details!
