    This shirt is being sold to raise money for Newtown.

    Police from across the state have volunteered their time around the holidays to help their fellow officers in Newtown and Manchester police are hoping to help raise money to help the entire community with T-shirts.

    Manchester police are selling T-shirts for $10 and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the Newtown memorial fund. 

    The back of the shirt shows an eagle with tears flowing and angels wings holding a teddy bear.    

    “We started getting calls this morning and started taking names because people want us to hold the for them,” Debbie Farr, of Farrs Sporting Goods, said.

    Calls are coming in from as far away as Utah and Oklahoma

    You can get a shirt at Farrs, located at 2 Main Street in Manchester; Manchester Municipal Credit Union, located at 479 Main St. in Manchester; and Funny Bone Comedy Club at Buckland Hills Mall.
    Manchester PBA members will be selling shirts every Friday and Saturday night at Funny Bone, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., until the end of January.

    On Jan, 2, there will also be a benefit at Funny Bone.
