November 26 Vallejo A&E Source: Always Something To Celebrate

Solano County student helps collect 3,000 boxes of cereal for Richmond homeless: Christonio Guerrera of Fairfield recently spearheaded a drive to collect boxes of cereal for the homeless in Richmond that succeeded better than hoped. A graduate of Benicia’s St. Dominic Elementary School, the De La Salle High School freshman who just turned 14, conceived of and lead the drive which ended at the end of October with the Concord school having reached its goal of collecting 3,000 cereal boxes, school officials and Guerrera’s grandmother Elaine Banasik said. The retired Vallejo School District employee said her grandson, whose father’s family founded and still runs the area’s Napoli’s pizzeria restaurants, is a good student, graduating from St. Dominic’s last year with “straight A’s,” and has been a competitive swimmer since age 8. “He was recognized by the school for his (cereal-collection) efforts,” Banasik said. “His parents had to haul all that cereal to De La Salle. It took two trips.”
