The Connecticut Parent Teacher Association reached out to fellow PTA members across the country, requesting handmade “Snowflakes for Sandy Hook” to create a “winter wonderland” at the new school the kids moved into.
Now on day 25, and the entire lobby of the state association is stuffed floor to ceiling. The office is crammed end to end with boxes of every size.
Originally, they thought they’d get a few boxes, mostly from Connecticut, but now it’s even spreading globally — with snowflakes mailed from children and parents from 50 countries.
