Local Kids Make Snowflakes To Greet Sandy Hook Elementary Students
Snow fell Sunday at the Italian American Civic Association in Watertown.
Kids and their parents made paper snowflakes for students from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.
The snowflakes will be used to create a "winter wonderland" for the children when they return to a temporary school after the holidays.
"It's nice to see an opportunity where our community around Watertown and this area kind of coming together in different ways," said organizer Shereen Daly.
"Making snowflakes is fun and giving to each other makes you feel good," said Julia Urf, who was making snowflakes with her sister, Olivia.
"It's a way for us to reach out to the families in Connecticut and the children that have been affected by this," said volunteer Robin Colello.
Some people couldn't make it to the Italian American club because of the snow outside.
They made snowflakes from home, instead.
