Interested in having your kids do something positive in response to the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary?
Local families are invited to a snowflake-making party for the children of Sandy Hook. The event for local families is 3-5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 21, at 25101 SE 24th Street in Sammamish.
From the City of Sammamish website: "We've all wondered how we can help in the wake of last week's tragic events in CT. Let's help the students of Sandy Hook have a winter wonderland at their new school! The Sandy Hook PTSA wants to decorate their new school with as many snowflakes as possible when classes resume in January. They are moving to an empty school in a neighboring town. Bring some white paper, scissors and your imagination. We will make sure the snowflakes get to CT. Kids Without Borders - a local, all volunteer non-profit, will be there with additional supplies and also be collecting donations for the 'Connecticut PTSA Sandy Hook Fund'.
The message for this event is positive - We know many small kids are innocently unaware of the tragedy. This is going to be a fun 'Snowflake Making Party' to help decorate a school on the other side of the Country to help make kids happy. Let's get creative!! No two snowflakes are alike...and that is a beautiful thing. Yes this is short notice but we hope to see as many people there as possible!!"
