Killingworth to Send Snowflakes and Support to Sandy Hook

The Killingworth Lions will also collect contributions to the Newtown Lions Club Foundation, to benefit victims and first responders of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy.

 

We are all grieving for the families of the small town of Sandy Hook—so much like Killingworth—and looking for ways to show that they are in our hearts.

On Saturday, December 22, from 8:00 a.m. to noon, at the Black Rock Schoolhouse on Recycle Way, the Killingworth Lions will collect contributions to the Newtown Lions Club Foundation, to benefit victims and first responders of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy. The Newtown Lions are working with the Connecticut Counseling Association to help their community heal.

At the same time, the KES PTO will also be collecting Snowflakes for Sandy Hook. The Sandy Hook PTA has asked for a winter wonderland of homemade snowflakes to decorate their new school building when it opens in January. Please stop by and bring your or your child’s unique creation—no two snowflakes are the same!—to be delivered to Newtown.

As a member of the Killingworth Lions Club, I think this is the best way to help out the families of Newtown. I hope that many of my Killingworth neighbors and friends will stop by and give what they can, tomorrow between 8 am -12 pm at Recycle Way. 100% of what we collect will go to the Fund that was setup in Newtown. Also make some snowflakes and bring them to KES.

Just to be clear, the snowflakes will be collected at the Lions tent at Recycle Way, not at KES. Many thanks to the Lions for their time and effort on yet one more community project.

Thanks everyone for all your donations and support this morning. 100% of what was collected will be sent to the Newtown Lions Club for support of the victims families.
