Nancy's Project is a charitable nonprofit organization founded
by Nancy Costello, to distribute food, clothing, and other necessities
to farm labor families in Monterey County.
For over 40 years, Nancy collected food and donations for delivery
throughout the year, and every December she organized the collection
of food, toys, warm clothing and other donations for special Christmas
baskets delivered to over 1000 families.
She continued collecting and delivering food, clothing and supplies
until last spring, when failing health caused her to turn over her
responsibilities to others in her organization. Nancy died on November
8, 2013, shortly after her 95th birthday. Nancy
Costello's obituary, published in the Herald on November 12,
tells about her life and accomplishments.
The spirit of Nancy still guides Nancy's Project. About 60 volunteers
are now carrying on the work that Nancy did, loading, driving and
delivering donations to the farm labor families.
