Everyday, Father John Nazzaro makes life just a little bit better and more meaningful, and safe, if you will, for East Boston youngsters lucky enough to attend the Salesian Boys and Girls Club which is housed in the former Dom Savio Hall on Byron Street.
With 17 employees and a whole lot of interest and care, more than 200 kids are cared for, watched over and nurtured by Father John and his staff.
The kids do their homework there.
The play in the game room.
They participate in a dozen daily activities.
They work on computers, create art, work out in the weight room and when they are hungry, they also get fed and there’s even a culinary program which teaches kids how to cook.
There is a teen room, a pre-teen room, a chess club and on and on and on.
Father John has performed a minor miracle for the neighborhood kids.
We urge our readers to consider helping out the Salesians Boys and Girls Club with a contribution.
Contributions help to pay for fuel and insurance for the basic expenses which are trending upward, always.
Stop by and see Father John.
He’ll show you around … and you’ll be impressed.
