Jefferson City, Mo. – Attorney General Chris Koster today said that his office has reached an agreement with Kendallwood Hospice Company to send funds held for Honor Flight Network of Kansas City to the national Honor Flight office. Koster filed a lawsuit against Kendallwood Hospice Company on October 3 for its refusal to return donations belonging to Honor Flight Network of Kansas City, Inc.
Under the agreement, Kendallwood will return the full amount it is holding in Honor Flight donations, which amounts to $38,282.32. In addition, Kendallwood will provide bank statements so that the Attorney General's Office can verify that all Honor Flight donations have been accounted for and returned. The funds will be used for Honor Flights for Kansas City-area veterans.
"Honor Flight has the noble mission of transporting veterans to see their memorials in Washington, D.C.," Koster said. "I am pleased that we were able to resolve this dispute so that these Honor Flight donations can help Kansas City veterans as they were intended."
