CFA Gets $2,000 from Ribbons

The Center for Food Action (CFA) received a check on February 17, 2006 for $2,000 during a brief ceremony at Bill O’Shea’s Florist , 231 Boulevard, 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 are 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. CFA always welcomes donations of basic non-perishable food items such as juice, cereal, canned goods, pasta, baby food, etc.

The ribbons were generously donated by Harvey Jaffe of Designer Dispatch Ribbon and Floral Accessories.
