MANDAN, N.D. — Bob Kupper, owner of Kupper Automotive, presented Maj. Gen. David Sprynczynatyk, North Dakota adjutant general, with a donation of more than $11,000 for the North Dakota National Guard Foundation, Oct. 19, 2012.

“We are extremely appreciative of the continued efforts of local business and organizations that support the North Dakota National Guard Foundation,” said Sprynczynatyk. “Our soldiers, airmen and their families will benefit from this donation by Kupper Automotive and the others that graciously contributed.”

The donation consisted of contributions by the dealership coupled with donations by individuals during Kupper’s annual Military Appreciation event held Sept. 8 in Mandan.

“Supporting our military members is the right thing to do,” said Kupper. “We are pleased that our annual military appreciation event continues to grow and that members of our community continue to contribute generously.”

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

ND-TAPS supports the national TAPS initiative and provides services to those who have lost a loved one serving in the Armed Forces. The funds are used to cover transportation costs for families of fallen service members as they travel to Washington, D.C., to participate in the annual national TAPS program on Memorial Day weekend.

ERF 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.

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.
