The Nazzaro Center, as is their usual routine this time of year, collected 168 canned goods and other food for the city’s annual can drive. As they have done for the past three years, delivered their collection to the food pantry run by the local ABCD out of the Villa Michelangelo on Charter Street. Shown in the picture are just a handful of the more than 100 Nazzaro Center members and families who contributed to the drive from mid-November through January 8. Of note in this picture are Maria Stella Gulla, executive director of the North End ABCD (3rd from the right,) and Gretchen Yochum (extreme right), ESOL Program Coordinator, who also happens to be the mother of Nazzaro member Emma Burgueno, who participated in past Nazzaro can drives herself. Although the children fell short of their goal to collect 360 cans, they are already talking about better collection methods for next year’s drive.
