Paint the town blue

By Staff | Jan 21, 2015

The West Virginia Auxiliary-Wives Behind the Badge, Inc. is proud to be behind one of the fastest growing initiatives for the organization to date. “Paint The Town Blue” will be held on Feb. 19 across the entire state of West Virginia. It will involve businesses and residents showing their support by wearing blue and showcasing blue bows in their windows.

The auxiliary has received support from businesses and residents who have agreed to display blue ribbons in windows and on doors throughout towns and cities-big and small. Jan Miller, director of the auxiliary, shares, “This idea was born very simply and I’m humbled by the eruption of support that we have seen in just two weeks.” To date, the organizing group has over 3,600 participants.

Individuals or businesses who wish to participate are encouraged to contact Valerie Northcraft by email at vnorthcraft@yahoo.com or phone 304-771-9575 to arrange for delivery or pick-up of ribbons.

Direct shipping is available for only $8 and provides the participant with an assembled ribbon; pick-up at various public sites is available for only $5.

The West Virginia Auxiliary Wives Behind the Badge, Inc. is a registered not-for-profit in the state of West Virginia and was established to support law enforcement officers and their families.

All monies raised in and for the state remain there to assist in times of need and through the parent organization’s programs. Donations can be made through PayPal or by visiting Wives Behind the Badge, Inc. online.
