Piles of Toys to Italian Home for Children Donated in Honor of Mark Frattaroli

Anna and Philip Frattaroli taking a break from boxing up the toys for the 2013 Holiday Toy Drive to benefit the Italian Home for Children in memory of Mark Frattaroli.

The Frattaroli family has been overwhelmed by the generosity toward their 2013 Holiday Toy Drive benefiting the Italian Home for Children and held in memory of Mark Frattaroli. Drop-off locations included Filippo Ristorante, Ducali Pizzeria & Bar, Ward 8 Restaurant & Bar and Lucia Ristorante & Bar.

Mark Frattaroli would have been 22 years old this week on December 17, 2013. The teddy bears shown in the picture are sporting jerseys knitted by Mark’s grandmoterh with his signature “44” team number.

There is still a day left to bring over a toy (or cash donation) to Ducali Pizzeria at 289 Causeway Street before the pile is delivered to the Italian Home for Children in Jamaica Plain on Friday, December 20th.
