FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
for Food Action
February 26, 2004
gets $2,500 from Ribbons
The Center for Food
Action (CFA) received a check on Feburary 26, 2004 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.
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.
Center for Food Action welcomes basic non-perishable
food items such as juice, cereal, canned goods, pasta, baby food, etc. Food
