Conn foundation to accept donations for Sandy Hook families
MERIDEN, Conn. (12/19/12)--Due to the overwhelming response of many across the country, and their desire to support families of those lost in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings Friday in Newtown, Conn., the Connecticut Credit Union Charitable Foundation will be accepting donations on their behalf.

The foundation trustees will work with Gov. Dannel Malloy's office in the coming weeks to identify an appropriate initiative to best help the families and honor the memories of those lost, said the foundation.

"As the families have requested, we are respecting their privacy at this time, but we expect to identify an actionable initiative for their benefit in the coming weeks," said the foundation.

Donations can be sent to:

The Connecticut Credit Union Charitable Foundation

1064 East Main St., Suite 201

Meriden, CT 06450
