A South Jersey community gathered Saturday in support of fallen New Jersey State Trooper Sean Cullen.

The line stretched from the front of a Cinnaminson Shop Rite and out the door.

People were at the supermarket buying blue bows and ribbons to raise money for Cullen's children.

Organizers tell Action News the campaign, dubbed "Operation Blue Ribbon," started on Facebook and took off from there.

"We can't make bows fast enough. We have people that are pitching in $5 a bow, and they're making their own bow because we don't have enough people to make the bows.

"So we're just teaching them as they're standing in line waiting so they can get their bows so they can show support for the Cullen and McCormick families," said Kelly Huber, organizer.

So far, thousands of dollars have been raised, and more events are planned.
