KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Price Chopper stores in the Kansas City metro are collecting donations through the end of May for fallen Independence firefighter David Jameson, Jr.

Beginning Wednesday, May 13, all area Price Chopper stores are collecting funds for Jameson.

The grocery store said 100% of all money raised will go to Jameson’s family.

Jameson, a 23-year veteran of the Independence Fire Department, died in the line of duty while responding to an illegal burn on May 7.

“On behalf of the entire Price Chopper family, we’d like to offer our condolences to the Jameson family,” Price Chopper chief marketing officer Casie Broker said in a release. “As a locally owned grocer, we’re so grateful to those who serve to protect our community.”
