MANDAN, N.D. - On Tuesday, Bob Kupper, of behalf of Kupper Automotive, presented a donation of $11,000 for the North Dakota National Guard Emergency Relief Fund (ERF). Accepting on behalf of the N.D. Guard’s ERF was Maj. Gen. David Sprynczynatyk, adjutant general for the North Dakota National Guard.

North Dakota National Guard Emergency Relief Fund provides financial support in sudden and unforeseen emergency situations for North Dakota National Guard members and their families, who may be facing illness, accident recovery, fire, theft or natural disasters.

“We are extremely appreciative of the efforts of local businesses like Kupper Automotive, as well as other organizations and individuals statewide that graciously support the North Dakota Emergency Relief Fund,” said Sprynczynatyk. “It’s comforting to know that this and the other generous donations that we've received, will ensure that we can assist soldiers, airmen and their families that may be severely impacted by the current government shutdown.”

The donation consisted of contributions by the dealership coupled with donations by individuals during Kupper’s annual Military Appreciation event held Sept. 7 in Mandan.

“Although the weather wasn’t cooperative, we still had a great turnout,” said Kupper. “That truly shows that people are passionate about supporting families of our military and were willing to open their wallets to show their appreciation.”

North Dakota National Guard members and their families are supported by programs offered through the North Dakota National Guard Foundation, which includes the North Dakota National Guard Emergency Relief Fund (ERF) and the North Dakota Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (ND-TAPS).

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the North Dakota National Guard Foundation has no paid employees and hires no professional fundraisers. It relies on volunteer assistance and donations from those concerned about military members and their families.
