This donation was the result of hundreds of bright red ribbons decorating the Boulevard in Hasbrouck Heights and Wood-Ridge during this recent holiday season.
Area residents donated $10 to the Center For Food Action. Bill O'Shea's Florist provided a beautiful red ribbon with the contributor's name on it. Generous contributors, who donated $50 for a special breakfast and a traditional Christmas or Hanukkah dinner for a family in our neighborhood, received embellished ribbons.
In additon, the Feinstein Challenge grant provides a percentage match of this $3,400 donation.
The ribbons were placed on every tree and telephone pole along the Boulevard in Hasbrouck Heights (from Route 46 to Wood-Ridge), by Knights of Columbus Msgr. Fitzpatrick Council 7041, and in Wood-Ridge by (from Hasbrouck Heights to Carlstadt), by Knights of Columbus St. Anthony Council 11585. The ribbons were removed after Valentine's Day.
The Center For Food Action is a non-profit food center that has served our area's needy since 1976.
The ribbon was provided by Harvey Jaffe of Designer Dispatch Ribbons and Floral Accessories.
