Ribbons of Hope symbolizing faith, hope, love and prayer

Together at Gadsden State we can bring faith, hope, love and prayer for one another. Use whatever ribbon you already have from a past celebration and may we see a beautiful array of color line our neighborhood streets.

During the duration of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, Governor Ivey encourages the people of Alabama to tie ribbons around a tree or pole in their front yard as a symbol to remind everyone to pray for medical personnel, first responders and for one another.

Tying ribbons around a tree, mailbox or fixture in a front yard will be called “Ribbons of Hope” and will symbolize faith, hope, love and prayer. During these unprecedented times, Governor Ivey hopes these simple gestures will create unity among us and become a beacon of encouragement for everyone who sees them.
