UPDATE- Holden Fire Dept. sold out of bracelets to honor late police chief
1,000 more bracelets are on order and should arrive by the end of April
HOLDEN, Maine (WABI) - The Holden Fire Department is organizing a fundraiser in honor of the town’s late police chief Chris Greeley.
Greeley died unexpectedly on March 9 after a brief illness.
One of the pillars of Greeley’s legacy is the “25 Days of Kindness” program he founded in 2017.
These bracelets will help keep that effort going.
The firefighter who came up with the idea to sell the bracelets says they’ll help keep Greeley’s memory alive, too.
“He was actually here when I started as just a patrolman. He wasn’t the police chief. So, we got to share some time together, whether it be on calls or just kind of hanging out the kitchen table having coffee together. So, just a good reminder of some of the stories he shared with us,” said Jonathan Chiasson, Holden firefighter/EMT.
They went on sale last week at $5 each with all the money benefiting Chief Greeley’s kindness campaign. All 500 were gone by the weekend.
A post on the Town of Holden Facebook page says 1,000 more bracelets have been ordered and they should be here by the end of the month.
