Newtown-Sandy Hook Community Foundation
As the second anniversary of the Newtown school shooting arrives Sunday, local officials and others touched by the tragedy have been busy on many fronts as the town continues its recovery from the massacre of 20 children and six educators.
The Newtown-Sandy Hook Community Foundation received more than 1,600 responses to the survey it released Monday on town residents’ unmet needs in the wake of the shooting that killed 20 first graders and six educators.
The allocation calls for $281,000 to be given to each of the families of the 26 children and school educators killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School last year.
The Newtown-Sandy Hook Community Foundation, which is overseeing more than $11 million, postponed public hearings with the victims’ families planned for Tuesday and Wednesday.
