iHeartCommunities Remembers: Sandy Hook 5th Anniversary

posted by Renee -

There's so many stories that came from that tragic day. I became so involved with The Newtown Congregational Church, we volunteered time and donated services, I was truly inspired by the strength of the community. (Ret.) Lt Paul Vance and I worked together for many years, but this incident really sealed our friendship forever. He is truly one of the best human beings I know. For the first time we reveal some of what we we did behind the scenes during that very stressful week. We hope you watch or listen to our chat and we hope you'll share our 26 Random Acts of Kindness That Don't Cost A Thing Video, that can be found here: CLICK HERE

The best way we knew how to honor the innocent lives lost and the strength of the people of Newtown, was to concentrate on kindness. We hope you will too.
