How to Donate Meal Delivery to Sandy Hook Families

Help send meals to residents of Sandy Hook.

 

As a long time resident of Newtown, Ct., I see the grief on the families who have suffered the most terrible of losses, one's child. It is a trauma from which their whole family now must endure.

When a tragedy struck my family 7 years ago (one of my children was severely injured and hospitalized for over a month), Newtown neighbors, strangers and friends organized an effort to provide us with dinners for several weeks. Not having to worry about shopping for and making dinner each night for our family was (surprisingly) a great stress reliever to myself, wife and children. This daily burden truly wears on a family under the stress of a real trauma. Let's help these families NOW with a gift that will help them so much more than the dollars donated.

All donations will be used to purchase gift cards which can be used by any of the families of victims to purchase dinners from local restaurants which provide delivery service in Newtown. The monies will be distributed equally among the participating families of the 26 victims of the Newtown Ct. tragedy.

This venture could not have been accomplished without the help of Newtown's local delivery service, Vroom Service Now. Thanks.

Anyone looking for a way to help the families that were affected by the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary should consider attending the benefit dinner I am hosting along with some of my fellow Quinnipiac students. It will be on January 3, 2013 at 7:00pm at Woodwinds in Branford. All proceeds will go to Newtown Youth and Family Services to help the affected families cover the cost of grief counselling. More information and tickets can be found at www.hopeforsandyhook.com

Caring Kids Cards has cards we would like to send to the kids that went to the school. Is there a place we can send them to?
