Buy a book to help this family

I was just a while ago talking to my neighbor who works for the Five Cents Savings Bank.

She told me that yesterday, her branch raised more than $200 for the Nolan M. Smith Fund through the book sale they organized.

I tell ya, there's nothing like getting a book for cheap and helping out a local family (they're from Amesbury). Can you even imagine having to be at the hospital round-the-clock with your 1-year-old, who has brain cancer?

I'm all for helping folks in other countries, but I think we need to take care of our own first and foremost.

The sale is ongoing at the bank's Storey Ave. branch (in the plaza), and it ends on Saturday.
