Tonetta Shaïve

Saint Tonetta Shaïve

For many years, Tony Caggiano has volunteered with Mass Bears and Cubs and led the organization as Secretary of the Board. Through tireless efforts, they achieved a 10+ year dream of the original founders of the organization to become a registered 501c3 non-profit. Tony has called upon the Sisters many times to collaborate for events like the yearly Bear Cruise and Mr. Boston Bear/Cub contest. Their organization runs a drive every year to donate coats to the homeless during the Winter. Additionally, Tony has partnered with other organizations in the area such as My Brother’s Table to volunteer with people who may have never met LGBTQIA+ individuals previously. It is through this amazing work Tony has touched many people’s lives in very significant ways. Tony was affectionately named Tonetta and in an effort to describe himself he very innocently combined the words ‘shy’ and ‘naïve’, so it was only appropriate to Saint him Tonetta Shaïve.
