Distributions Make Holidays At The ABCD North End/West End Neighborhood Service Center Merry And Bright

Blackstone Apartments staff receive food bags.

Buone Feste! December was a time filled with holiday distributions for the seniors and families that the ABCD North End/West End Neighborhood Service Center (NE/WE NSC) serves. Although sadly due to COVID-19 there was no December holiday party, staff strove to create feelings of joy and delight in some surprises during this unprecedented year.

Thanks to collaboration with the Greater Boston Food Bank, Lovin’ Spoonfuls, and donors such as the Beacon Hill Civic Association, Strada 234, The Third Order Franciscan Secular, and West End Place, the “elves” at the NE/WE NSC organized heavy bags of food, with items such as pasta, tuna, raisins, nuts, cereal, soups, self-stable milk, and so forth, for seniors in the North End and West End apartment buildings.
