Many KOAA News5 viewers are asking how they can help those directly affected by the Sandy Hook Shootings in Newtown, Conn.
The National PTA contacted us and gave us the following information for those wishing to help:
When school resumes for Sandy Hook, it will be in a new building. Parent-volunteers are working to ensure that the students are welcomed back by a winter wonderland with the entire school decorated with as many unique snowflakes as possible. We encourage senders to be as creative as possible, remembering that no two snowflakes are alike. Please make and send snowflakes by January 12, 2013 to the Connecticut PTSA address at the end of this email.
Donations will also be accepted indefinitely to the Connecticut PTSA "Sandy Hook Fund" to provide ongoing support to the community. Please send checks to the Connecticut PTSA address listed at the end of this email.
The Newtown community has requested only monetary donations at this time.
Thank you for your generous support and dedication to the children and families of Newtown, Connecticut.
Betsy Landers, National PTA President
Jim Accomando, Connecticut PTSA President
Please send all snowflakes and donations to:
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12, Suite 103
