Many of us want to help, and we feel like there is very little we can do.
A friend from Connecticut posted a link to this Newtown Patch article, and I wanted to pass this along:
“As people from our area and beyond respond to this heartbreaking tragedy, they are turning to United Way looking for ways to help. In response, UWWC, in partnership with Newtown Savings Bank, has created the Sandy Hook School Support Fund that will provide support services to the families and community affected by this senseless tragedy.
To donate to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund, you can send a check to:
Sandy Hook School Support Fund
c/o Newtown Savings Bank
39 Main Street, Newtown CT 06470
Or, checks may be dropped off at any Newtown Savings Bank branch location – http://www.nsbonline.com/about-us/locations.aspx. For questions please call 800-461-0672.
To donate online, go to https://newtown.uwwesternct.org“
I’m not sure what else we can do, besides start a long overdue national dialogue both about mental health and the problem with guns in this country, but that small community will need all the help it can get, and this is one way to send it.
