  1. This such a nice gesture from the businesses and the people of the North End (and those that will be eating at these restaurants).
    The North End ALWAYS supports other countries and our own during difficult times. This is one reason I am proud to be a native North Ender.
    God Bless you all and all of the people in Italy.
