“To help the poor so they can survive,” Larry Earley said when asked why he was doing the walk.
Erin teaches toddlers at the Head Start program in Haverhill. She said she wanted to help people who are “less fortunate that I am.”
Noting that the children she teachers are from lower-income families, she said she hopes efforts like the Walk for the Poor will “help them in their future.”
Joseph Contrada, coordinator of this year’s walk, said it was too soon to tell how much money was raised Saturday.
