How to Help Newtown from Brecksville

Here are some ways to reach out to the families affected by the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

On Friday, a shooting at a Connecticut elementary school stunned the country. 

In the days that have followed, the Patch site in Newtown, Connecticut, has been filled with reflective essays, photos of vigils from across the country and countless offers to help in the form of fundraisers, therapy services, memorial gifts and more. 

If you’re looking for a way to reach out to those families, Newtown Patch has a list of the charities chosen by the families of the victims. This article is also being updated with more charity opportunities every day.
