Peter Britto Beloved by New Bedford

TSM

Every once in a while, callers to the station want to bring up an article or a column I wrote for The Standard-Times. Normally, I try to not mix my jobs together, but when it comes to telling the story of the wonderful Peter Britto, I’m more than happy to make an exception.

I profiled Peter in a piece for The Standard-Times that focuses on the 10th anniversary of his New Bedford Youth United basketball league, but also tells the story of a man who has tirelessly dedicated himself to the youth of the city for more than 40 years.

I wasn’t going to bring it up on the air, but after folks read the article, the calls of tribute started pouring in.

As much as it was great to hear everyone praising Peter on the air, why not stop by one of the city parks during the Youth United games and tell him so directly? Or better yet, offer to volunteer. If Peter can give 40 years of his life (and counting) to the children of New Bedford, surely we can all find a few hours ourselves. Peter can tell you first-hand what a difference it can make in the lives of young people in the city.
