The Friends of the North End, (FONE), held their 2014 Christmas clothing drive for veterans. This year’s recipient organization was the Edith Rogers Memorial Hospital for Veterans in Bedford, MA, to whom a substantial amount of clothing was donated. Every year during the Christmas season the FONE donates clothing and other necessary items to Veterans.
Spearheading the drive was Robert Ragucci and Richard Pantaliere. Accepting the donation was Commander Ralph Masciulli of VFW Post 144 in the North End. Commander Masciulli presented Robert and Richard with an award for all their efforts in organizing a very successful clothing drive.
