gets $2,500 from Ribbons
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 20, 2003
The Center for Food Action (CFA) received a check
recently for $2,500 during a brief ceremony at Bill
O'Shea's Florist at the Circle in Hasbrouck Heights.
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. Contributors who donated $50
received embellished ribbons.
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 (from Hasbrouck Heights to Carlstadt), by Knights of Columbus St.
Anthony Council 11585. The ribbons were removed after Valentine's Day.
In addition to this contribution to the CFA by our community, the Feinstein Challenge
Grant will provide a percentage match of this donation.
