Farms View Donating Portion of Sales to Injured Officer
Farms View will donate 25 percent of all sales on Wednesday, Nov. 28 to officer Bob Franco and his family.
The farm will be open extended hours, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., that day.
Customers can choose from a variety of seasonal items, including Christmas trees and wreaths.
The farm stand is the latest business to assist Franco and his family since he suffered a severe spinal cord injury during Hurricane Sandy. A tree fell on the vehicle he was in at Fire Company 5, pinning him inside. It took emergency workers an hour to extract him from the vehicle.
Franco was in surgery for six hours after the accident and kept immobilized for sometime thereafter.
Franco is now walking a little bit and has regained some motion in his shoulders and arms.
Local businesses, organizations, and individuals have designed a series of charitable activities to help Franco and his family.
Wayne UNICO is selling poinsettias until Dec. 7 and donating a portion of the proceeds.
Fairway Market donated a percentage of sales Nov. 15 to Franco and his family. The Wayne PBA Local 136 has set up a donation account online through PayPal.
Two Wayne residents ran a marathon to raise money for Franco. They were slated to run in the New York City marathon but since it was cancelled, they decided to run a marathon around Packanack Lake to raise money for Franco and his family.
