Center for Food Action
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 OSheas 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 OSheas Florist provided a beautiful red ribbon with the contributors 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 Valentines Day.
The Center For Food Action is a non-profit food center that has served our areas 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.
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. ###
