Special Day for the Needy
y John R. Downey
It was just two weeks before Christmas when a host of
children and parents gathered at the Salem High School
for a party they would never forget. Over five-hundred
seats were filled to the max, from 2 months old to 75
years of age, with hundreds of toys stacked to the ceiling,
a 10-foot cake with all the fixings of a winter sport
arena, a musician for caroling, the Grinch, Santa, and
the number-one real estate company in Southern New
Hampshire and the Merrimack Valley. Gifts ranged from
a 32-inch flat-screen TV, a laptop computer, the infamous
Wii game, and more. It was the fastest, most exciting two
hours of philanthropy we may see in our lifetime.
After an incredible year of record unemployment,
homelessness, foreclosures, and millions lost in the stock
market, our community was ready for a bash of a lifetime,
and a bash is what they got. Every single child received
an incredible gift, shared snacks and drinks, caroled their
hearts out, and enjoyed a visit from the scary Grinch and
the beloved Sancta Claus, all at no cost. They say things
in life that are free are for me, and let me tell you, there
was not a frown to be found.
Congratulations to Coco, Early & Associates for
touching so many hearts, so many families, and
most importantly, so many children.
