Good things happen to James Denny.
As a sixth-grader living in south Jersey, his home was a safe haven for poor kids from Camden who would come to Denny’s house to play basketball and eat meals rather than wander unsafe city streets. He saw at a young age what happens when kindness is offered. The good side of people is what you see in return.
A year ago, he entered a television contest to win a custom tree house for his family. Denny, who lives in Jim Thorpe, wanted to give the house as a gift to his mother who raised a wonderful family mostly on her own.
