Newtown Sends Hearts of Hope to Boston

Hearts of Hope

Volunteers from Newtown are packaging up hearts to deliver to Boston.

Volunteers are meeting in Newtown today to package Hearts of Hope, keepsake hearts with messages of hope, to be delivered to Boston.

The event is intended to be in show of solidarity with Boston one month after the Boston Marathon bombings and support families affected by the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

Hearts of Hope is a “Pay it Forward” community service program based in Cooperstown, New York. Since May 7, it has created 35,887 hearts.

The volunteers are meeting at the Newtown Senior Center, 14 Riverside Road, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and again from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
