NEWTOWN, Conn. -

In the wake of the Sandy Hook elementary school tragedy, people from across the country are looking for ways to help victims and their families.

The USPS has set up a P.O. Box just for condolence letters.  The address is:

Message of Condolence

PO Box 3700

Newtown, CT 06470

Another way to help is to donate. Various organizations have created accounts to help, including the Newtown Memorial Fund and the Sandy Hook School Support Fund.

Many families have also set up individual memorial funds in the name of their loved one.

One Newtown native is selling "I Love Newtown" t-shirts to help. Anyone can purchase the shirts for $25 dollars online.
