gets $3,400 from Ribbons
The Center for Food Action received a check for $3,400 during a brief ceremony at Bill
O'Shea's Florist at the Circle in Hasbrouck Heights on April 18, 2001.
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

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
In additon, the Feinstein
Challenge grant provides a percentage match of this $3,400 donation.

The ribbons were removed after Valentine's Day.
