Assemblywoman Rose Marie Heck
Receives Accolades

During the September 4, 2002 Good Neighbor Day Food Drive sponsored by Bill O'Shea's Florist , Assemblywoman Rose Marie Heck was showered with accolades by the Center For Food Action (CFA).

Thelma Fedele, CFA Director of Community & Government Relations said, "Since the economic downturn, there has been a large increase in the number of people in need of food. Assemblywoman Heck has been instrumental in making this need know thoughout our area.  CFA truly appreciates her efforts."  Ms. Fedele continued, "It is particularly fitting to honor her publicly on Good Neighbor Day, because she has been a good neighbor by raising awareness for the need of food donation  in Bergen County.

Bergen County Executive Pat Shuber stopped by with a food donation and also presented Assemblywoman Heck with  "Certificate of Commendation" for her efforts.

Jukebox Radio's (103.1FM) taped the presentation along with several interviews for later broadcast.  Assemblywoman Heck reminded listeners of the continuing need for food assistance and stated that her office accepts donations on behalf of the CFA.

The presentation took place on Wednesday, September 4, when Bill O'Shea's Florist hosted the 7th Annual Good Neighbor Day where 12,000 roses were given away absolutely free to anyone who visited.  But before receiving FREE Roses, residents were invited to make a food donation for the   Center For Food Action (CFA), the non-profit food bank that has served our area's needy since 1976. CFA welcomed basic non-perishable food items such as juice, cereal, canned goods, pasta, baby food, etc.   ####
