Community Rallies for Men and Women in Blue
The community came out to support their local law enforcement at the 1st Annual Americans Stand United for the Men and Women in Blue Rally on Sunday, January 29th from 2 to 6pm in Historic Downtown Montgomery, Texas.
Founded by Mary Jobe and Pamela Morris, Americans Stand United is a 501(c)3 Non-profit Organization that brings the community together to show support and appreciation for Law Enforcement Officers. The event was also supported by Kids for Cops, a local program under Americans Stand United, that promotes positive relationships between youths and law enforcement through education and monthly activities throughout the community.
The event was open to any officers, their families and citizens who support our police officers. Attendees wore blue in appreciation for the men and women who protect and serve our communities everyday and sponsorships were provided by local businesses. Gift bags were given to officers that attended event including the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Montgomery County Constable Offices, DPS and local law enforcement in Montgomery County.
Hello Woodlands had the honor of interviewing Americans Stand United’s Pamela Morris, Captain Billy Masden and Captain Melvin Franklin. Watch to discover why it means so much to the officers to receive support from the community:
Jason Allen entertained the crowd with live music and attendees also enjoyed moonwalks, face painting, vendors, a silent auction and delicious BBQ graciously donated by Easley Brothers Hog Heaven BBQ. The event also included “The Blue Blood Drive” by Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center.
