Sandy Hook Elementary School - Newtown, CT

The day of the Sandy Hook shootings is referred to by many families as their 12/14. That moment in time is one filled with both quiet moments and emotional grief. A former Sandy Hook Elementary School student has launched the second annual series of remembrances to honor the 20 children and six educators who were fatally shot. One is the “26 Days of Kindness,” which encourages performing a charitable act in the spirit of each life lost on December 14, 2012. During the second anniversary, K-9 Disaster Relief through its “K-9 for Kids” outreach program will once again reach out to the Newtown children, with canine acts of kindness and emotional support.
