Good Story Challenge: Box Tops for Sandy Hook | News
WILLIAMSVILLE, NY - Our challenge to bring you positive and uplifting stories from our community continues today, and this morning we have the story of a local effort to help Sandy Hook Elementary school recover in a way you might not have thought about.
If you're a parent, you've probably heard of box tops for education, the little coupons on groceries that you can save up for your school. They're each worth ten cents for things your school needs.
The Center for Handicapped Children Learning Center in Williamsville reached out to the box tops coordinator at Sandy Hook and asked if they wanted help starting their collection again.
"She was almost in tears and said we'd really appreciate that, because we haven't started since the incident and we could use that to get back on our feet," says Kathleen Burkard, CHC Box Tops Coordinator.
All this month, every box top CHC collects will go to the students in Connecticut.
And if you want to help, you can drop off box tops or donations at the Center for Handicapped Children at 80 Lawrence Bell Drive in Williamsville.
