In the aftermath of the unimaginable tragedy at Sandy Hooks Elementary in Connecticut, many organizations are mobilizing to help the families of the victims and all of those affected by it.
KLTV has put together a list of resources for those here in East Texas who want to send assistance to the families and the community touched by this unspeakable act of terror.
A longtime resident of Newtown, CT, and a Newtown High School graduate, Brian Mauriello, has established the Newtown Memorial Fund which is dedicated to ensuring the community has a repository that will honor the memory of the 26 victims who perished at Sandy Hook Elementary on Dec. 14, 2012.
