Hewitt Library collects snowflakes for Sandy Hook victims, families
Hewitt, TX — Just weeks after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary unfolded in Connecticut, Central Texans are still reaching out to help victims and their families.
This week, Hewitt Public Library has been collecting 'snowflakes' that will be used in a winter wonderland display in Newton. More than 200 snowflakes have been collected in just five days. It's just a small gesture that makes a big impact, displaying everyone's support.
"The children are very proud of themselves. The adults feel like they've contributed in some way. And, it just sends a message to those families, personnel, that, you know, people do care," said Hewitt Library Director, Waynette Ditto.
The last of the snowflakes will be collected at the new Hewitt "Adventure Playground" ribbon cutting ceremony, Friday morning at 10. The 'art pieces' will then be shipped off to newton.
