The Center for Food Action
received a check on February 26, 2004 for $2,500 from Bill O'Shea during a brief ceremony
at Bill O'Shea's Florist at the Circle in Hasbrouck Heights.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Center for Food Action
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.
The Center For Food Action is a non-profit food center that has served our area's needy since 1976. CFA always welcomes donations of basic non-perishable food items such as juice, cereal, canned goods, pasta, baby food, etc.
The ribbon was provided by Harvey Jaffe of Designer Dispatch Ribbons and Floral Accessories.
Bill O'Shea's Florist has been sponsoring the Buy-A-Ribbon program since 1998. Bill O'Shea Florist was established in Hasbrouck Heights in 1969.
