An update on blue ribbons for Chris Kilcullen

The outpouring of support for Eugene Police Officer Chris Kilcullen has been so amazing. We handed out over 2500 blue ribbons yesterday and thousands more today!

All the blue magnetic ribbons we had have quickly gone out the door. We are hoping to get more but will keep the community updated if they arrive.

Arriving tomorrow morning are 350 blue bracelets inscribed with “Ofc. C.  Kilcullen 4-22-11”. These will be sold for $4 and all profits will go to the Chris Kilcullen Memorial Fund at Oregon Community Credit Union.

Honoring Eugene Police Officer Chris Kilcullen

Eugene has suffered such a tragedy over the weekend with the fatal shooting of Eugene Police Officer Chris Kilcullen. Our hearts go out to his wife, children, family and friends.

A call has been made to wear blue in remembrance of Chris Kilcullen and all officers who have died in the line of duty. Here at Dandelions we are wearing blue ribbons in remembrance and are offering free blue ribbons to all who would like one.  At least 100 have already been picked up this morning and individuals have shared sweet stories of how they were connected to Chris Kilcullen.  There are those, too, who may not have known him personally but are showing their respect by donning a ribbon.

Feel free to stop by Dandelions at 1710 Chambers St., Eugene, OR and take a ribbon with you.
