Donation of Art Supplies and “Snowflakes” for Newtown School to be Collected at Second Annual Festival of Trees this Friday
Our hearts go out to our neighbors in Newtown, CT - such unimaginable tragedy at a time when children should be celebrating the holidays.
This Friday, December 21st from 7-9PM marks the last day of the Cultural Arts Coalition’s Festival of Trees at the Studio Around the Corner. While the event is free, please donate elementary art supplies, which are being collected for Sandy Hook students. This evening you can also sing along with Christmas carols, share some cheer, make your last minute bids for auction prizes and purchase ornaments from Studio tree.
The Studio Around the Corner is located at 67 Main St, Ste. 101, in the Village of Brewster.
Bring some snowflakes to the Studio!
"Many of you have asked what you can do. A message from the PTA/PTSA:
Let’s Give Sandy Hook School a Winter Wonderland”
Snowflake Drive – Like our children, no two snowflakes are alike. We invite you to create snowflakes to decorate Sandy Hook School’s new home. Be creative! All colors and designs are welcome. We know that children will enjoy creating art that can adorn the walls of SHS’s new elementary school. CT PTSA has been contacted from schools across the state and this is a project we can all share. “Snowflake” drop boxes will be available at all schools or can be mailed to: Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514, by January 12, 2013.
What Else Can We do?”
Sandy Hook School Fund -- Many people are looking to help by making a donation. Please be cautious before contributing money and make sure the fund is legitimate. With the help of CT PTSA, we have created the "Sandy Hook School Fund" and donations will be accepted through CTPTA.ORG. You can pay online or send a check to Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514 (if online contributing is made available, we will let you know). No fees are charged and all monies raised will go directly to help Sandy Hook School and Newtown. The beauty of this fund is that we can designate its use farther down the road, when we can determine where it will do the most good for the families of SHS and our town.
Thank you to all of you and God Bless you."
