Showing Solidarity with Ribbons

After the death of Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller, the Southwest Florida community has come together in a variety of ways.

In this time of unity, children are giving a helping hand to make 10,000 black and blue ribbons for Officer Jobbers-Miller, who will be laid to rest on Monday, August 6, 2018.

“Our community wouldn’t be as safe without the police officers so we really need to say that we’re happy that we’re here since they don’t normally get that much support from kids my age even,” 13-year-old Alexis Glidden said.

Lee Memorial Health System’s Military Support Program is spearheading the ribbon-making event. Hundreds of volunteers, including adults and children, helped to make the ribbons. On Monday, volunteers will hand out ribbons during Officer Jobbers-Miller’s funeral, which starts out at the Germain Arena.
