If you are like me and want to help those families and the community of Newtown Ct. after this awful tragedy, here are some ways you can. I got this information from a Parent talk group in Mass. that I belong to.
Please be kind to one another and help our children.
Donate to one of the funds set up to help the Sandy Hook Families
Set up by the parents of children who survived and other locals, this fund will help with funerals, as well as ongoing living expenses such as food, mortgage payments, daycare, insurance and fuel until they are back on solid ground.
A new fund founded by Brian Mauriello, who describes himself as a long-term Newtown resident and a parent, to pay for short-term expenses as well as a memorial and a multi-generational foundation fund for the Newtown, Connecticut, community. He is seeking board members.
