Most of us want to do something to help The families in Newtown heal. I thought this was a great idea from the school boards in CT. They are gathering together to create a winter wonderland for the children when they return. They need our help! This is such a simple act of service, that I think we can all get involved with.
I have put together this collection of snowflakes that can be made & sent to them. There are easy ones your kids can make & more difficult ones that hopefully they can save. Click on the links below & it will take you to instructions for each one. Below is the Email from National PTA & where to send them. They need to be sent by January 12th, 2013. Thanks for your help with this project…
Here is the Email from National PTA:
“National PTA and the Connecticut PTSA pledge our unwavering support to the Newtown community. In the past few days, we have met with PTA leaders of all of the schools in Newtown, including the Sandy Hook PTA, and community leaders who have requested our help in supporting the families. For those of us who are looking to be of assistance in the aftermath, we share the following projects in need of your support:
Welcome Students to a Winter Wonderland
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.
Donating and Organizing Fundraisers for Sandy Hook Elementary School
Donations will 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. Group fundraising projects may include walk-a-thons, spirits days, pajama days, etc., which may be scheduled at your convenience.
For student-run coin drives, please submit all donations by February 14, 2012.
The Newtown community has requested only monetary donations at this time. For service or product donation inquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. To contact Sandy Hook PTA, please email email@example.com.
