HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ -- Bill O’Shea’s Florist continued its over two decades-long tradition to foster community spirit by hosting Good Neighbor Day on Wednesday.
The florist collected food donations in exchange for a bouquet, which is to be shared with others in the community. A note inside the arrangement read:
“Good Neighbor Day
Thank you for joining us in being a good neighbor. In keeping with the spirit of the day, Bill O’Shea’s Florist is giving ‘roses by the bunch’ with the stipulation that you keep one rose and give the others away, and in the process meet, get acquainted or renew friendships.”
All food donations will be given to the Hasbrouck Heights Food Pantry. According to John Kosakowski, co-owner, last year they collected 80 bags of non-perishable food items, which took two van trips to transport to the pantry.
"This helps the food pantry so much," said Linda Kosakowski, co-owner.
The annual event is an industry tradition with florists participating from the United States and Canada. They host local events, make philanthropic donations and help spread friendship and kindness to their neighbors with the distribution of free floral bouquets.
