Thank you for the overwhelming love and support shown for our Seaside Police Department and fallen officer Sergeant Jason Goodding.
Citizens interested in helping support the Goodding Family in their time of loss with monetary contributions may do so in one of two ways:
1. Donate through any U.S. Bank branch in Seaside or nationally. Checks should be made out to the Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation and the memo line should read: for the Goodding family. 100% of all donations will be contributed directly to the family. Cash, checks, and transfers are all accepted. Please make sure to mention the Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation and the Goodding family when donating.
2. Donations can also be made through the Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation website at oregonfallenbadge.com and follow the link marked “Donate to OFBF”. When making your donation, after entering your payment information and going to the next page, click on the “Add special instructions for recipient” and type “for the Goodding Family” before submitting your payment.
At this time, we ask that you please do not bring signs to the Police Department. Flowers are accepted. If you want to bring food, please contact Russ Vandenberg with the Seaside Convention Center at (503) 738-8585.
Memorial service will be held this Friday, February 12, 2016, at the Seaside Convention Center, located at 415 First Avenue in the City of Seaside. The start time is 1:00 p.m., and the public is invited to attend. Additional venues will be be identified in case the convention center reaches capacity. In that case, the event will be simulcast for the public at those additional venues.
The service will be preceded by a law enforcement procession that will wind through the streets of Seaside ending at the convention center. The public is encouraged to stand on the route to show their support for Sgt. Goodding's family, who will be riding in the procession.
Details of the route will be announced later this week, along with potential overflow venues where the service will be broadcasted.
