PAGE TWO (AWt.T CWBTB* mnrg FRITH T, WOTBMBBR », 1MB This Christmas in Naples Will Continue Until Easter By KEN'NETH O, G1LMORK ' NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON *- (NEA) — The $3 - a - year Naples cave dwellers will have more than a one-shot Christmas gift from the U.S.A. to see them through the winter this year. For the first time in history every family in the city holding a so-called "poverty card" will be given a 22-pound food package oach month from DrcembPr to April. CARE is running' this most comprehensive of all attempts to help needy persons in one area. Dolhr donations by the American people, a congressional appropriation and tons of surplus dairy products make it possible. The Agriculture Department is supplying the surplus food and Congress has provided the money to ship it abroad. An {additional dollar from individual eimrns covers distributing and packaflinir. The Naples operation is .part of CARE'S current world-Aide food crusade to assist suffering people iii Europe and Asia. In Naples, where 80,000 persons are unemployed, "poverty cards" have been issued to 18,000 families who have absolutely no means of support. This entitles them to free medical care and tax exemption. Holders are also given 1,000 lire twice a year, about S3.00. .j. "At the present time that is all the local government is able io do," explains Raymond Izbicki who just left for Italy to direct the CARE program. "Our goal is to tide these poverty stricken families over dur- ine the five winter months. "Their plight is appalling. A number of them live in crude caves just outside the city. It is particularly hard on the children." Each CARE bundle contains seven pounds of cheese, nine pounds of powdered milk and six pounds of butter. The powdered milk can be made into 39 quarts of milk. Your name if you gave a dollar will be stamped on one package, CARE makes sure a receipt is collected on delivery. FOR THE MI'XnRV and cold and miserable rave dwellers of Naples, CARK brings a long, long Christmas present.
