Ways to help Newtown/ Sandy Hook families

December 15, 2012

In the course of reading about yesterday's tragedy I came across several organizations that are raising funds to help the families of the victims and the town. I thought maybe it would be helpful to post them all in one place for those who've been wanting to do something to help. If you come across any others, feel free to add them to the thread.

Newtown Youth and Family Services
(community mental health center offering emergency counseling and other services)

Newtown Parent Connection
(usually deals with substance abuse but also offers bereavement counseling)

Sandy Hook School Support Fund
c/o Newtown Savings Bank
39 Main St.
Newtown, CT 06470
(joint effort of a local bank and the United Way)

If you aren't able to donate but would like to express your sympathy to the families and the town, the Hartford Courant (newspaper) has set up an online guest book here:
