CHARITY

FERRAGOSTO MEANS GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

 

Ferragosto benefits the Little Italy community through supporting scholarships, youth educational programs, and the historical preservation of the neighborhood through these organizations:

 

Little Italy Association (LIA)

 

A stable ethnic business and residential community since the 1920's, Little Italy today represents Downtown San Diego’s oldest continuous neighborhood business district. Through the ongoing efforts of the Little Italy Association, today’s Little Italy is a thriving retail and residential community. The Little Italy Association has aggressive plans to bring the story of Little Italy to its visitors through public art displays and events, serving as a model for historical and cultural preservation.

Your Ferragosto funds used by the Little Italy Association have started a documentary on the fishing community of Little Italy preserving our history via interviews and documentation of past and present living fisherman that built our neighborhood to what was once the Tuna Capital of the world. Little Italy aslo restored the landmark sign on India street and renovated the Piazza Basilone as a tribute to our American warriors.

Washington Elementary School Foundation (WESF)

The Washington Elementary School Foundation exists to enhance the school’s quality of instruction, to enlarge the resources to the school and to structure a community around them. The WESF’s role is to raise the money necessary to provide the tools and environments that the teachers and staff need to achieve this goal.

Washington Elementary School Foundation has used Ferragosto funds for starting: Art and cultural programs including Italian language studies. This now includes a science curriculum as Washington Elementary transitions to a GATE School.

Our Lady of the Rosary Church (OLR)

A beacon of hope serving San Diego’s Little Italy community for over 90 years, Our Lady of the Rosary Church has provided over $500,000 in school and college scholarships since 1993. OLR continues to be the cornerstone for historical preservation for San Diego’s Little Italy.
