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 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.

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. ###
