ST. HELENS, Ore. — On Monday July 27th, a Back The Blue billboard will go up on a main drag in St. Helens. College freshman Caden Willaby is spearheading a movement to support local police.
Willaby came up with the idea because he felt the Black Lives Matters movement was not looking at any of the good that police officers do everyday. He felt like bad apples were taking a toll on the entire law enforcement community.
There will be prayer and messages of encouragement for police and their families at 5:00pm by St. Helens Auto Body and Paint.
Willaby is getting the word out through social media. He has received numerous positive comments and has not heard from naysayers who plan to show up to decry the event.
