On Long Island, shamrock sales for charity
Costello’s Ace raised $10,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s (MDA’s) Make a Muscle … Make a Difference program last month.
The Deer Park, N.Y., operator of 19 neighborhood hardware stores on New York’s Long Island raised the funds by collecting donations that were recognized by shamrock decorations displayed throughout the store.
“We are proud to say we raised $10,000 for this great cause, with our North Massapequa location raising more than $1,400 alone,” said David Faulhaber, marketing coordinator for the company.
In 2011, Costello's Ace was selected by Home Channel News as the New York state representative for the national list of 50 Hardware All-Stars.
