How to Help Sandy Hook

While I don’t believe there is a way to truly comfort the victims of this tragedy, the Connecticut Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA) is offering advice on how to help. From the website:

“Connecticut PTSA is deeply saddened by the tragedy that has struck our Newtown community. We have met with the PTA and community leaders in Newtown and Sandy Hook Elementary to offer our assistance at this very difficult time.  They have asked us to spearhead the following efforts on their behalf:

Snowflakes for Sandy Hook
Please help the students of Sandy Hook have a winter wonderland at their new school! Get creative!  No two snowflakes are alike. Make and send snowflakes by Jan. 12 to:

Connecticut PTSA

Hamden, CT  06514

Coins for Sandy Hook
Students can collect spare change to support their peers at Sandy Hook.  Other fundraising ideas include Walk- A -Thons, Spirit Days, Pajama Days, etc.
