Holiday tree supports Sandy Hook families

Continue reading below

A holiday tree outside the Central Fire Station on North Main Street is being decorated with black ribbons, as residents make donations to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund, which was established by the United Way of Western Connecticut to help victims’ families and the Newtown community following the shootings at the elementary school. The local fund-raiser was organized by Silo Lane resident Bonnie Leonard, who said the fire station seemed like the perfect location for the tree since it is open around the clock. Those who donate $1 or more may sign a sympathy card and obtain a ribbon to tie on the tree. The tree, donated by Dellarocco’s Landscape Design and Irrigation, will remain up until next Sunday. While Leonard hasn’t tallied up the donations since the tree was set up on Dec. 20, she said, she believes the effort is going well. “I initially brought 120 ribbons and on Sunday morning they said they needed more,” she said Wednesday. “That’s a good sign.”
