JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster says a hospice company has agreed to turn over nearly $40,000 in donations to send elderly military veterans to Washington.
The attorney general's office said Kendallwood Hospice Co. will send money held for Honor Flight Network of Kansas City Inc. to the national Honor Flight Office. Koster's office filed suit earlier this month and announced the settlement Wednesday.
In addition to returning the money, Kendallwood agreed to provide bank statements so the attorney general's office can verify the donations have been accounted.
Koster says he is pleased the donations can go to help Kansas City veterans as they were intended.
