NEAD Scholarship Program Seeking Donors


North End Against Drugs will be kicking off our annual Raymond and Michelina Costa Scholarship Program for North End Youth in the next few weeks.  Last year, we gave out approximately $7,500.00 in scholarships and would like to do the same or more this year.  We already have several thousand dollars committed and are looking for a few more donors.  Scholarships are given in $500, $750 and $1000 amounts, however, any amount is graciously accepted.  Scholarships can be made in Memory of a loved one, in a business name, a family name or in honor of someone.  Any donation given in one or three listed amounts can have the scholarship given in their name.  Scholarships are awarded in late May at the Nazzaro Center Spring Concert/NEAD Family Dinner.  For more information, contact John Romano at (617) 880-9901 or at
