                                       CIAO in Salem, Oregon

In the spirit of their motto “Cultura e Caritas” (Culture and Charity), The Cultural Italian American Organization of Auburn extended their assistance to a fundraiser for the South Salem Church of the Nazarene, in Salem, Oregon.

 

CIAO members Paolo and Anna Saltarello traveled to visit and assist son Joe (a west coast CIAO member), his family, and members of the South Salem Nazarene Church, to prepare and serve a traditional Pasta Dinner for a fundraiser to support the church’s youth program to provide scholarships to a Christian summer camp. Maria Saltarello Lentini personally baked three different types of homemade Italian cookies (totaling 550 cookies) which were brought to Oregon and served with the pasta dinner.

 

The event took place on Sunday, June 6, 2021, with about 150 dinners served, and over $2,000 was raised. Food was prepared by CIAO members Paolo and Anna Saltarello; Joe Saltarello, his wife Heidi, his children, Anthony and Tessa; and Joe’s brother Mario Saltarello.

After the church event, the Saltarello family delivered the remaining cooked pasta dinners to a local homeless camp at a Salem park.

 

Pastor Aaron Middleton expressed thanks and appreciation for the effort of all who prepared and provided support for the event, saying, “An amazing time was had by all, as the authentic Italian dinner was served. The smiling faces and the servants’ hearts put this meal over the top. This will definitely be happening again at South Salem Church of the Nazarene.”
