VFW Members Ready to Assist Grieving Newtown Families

NEWTOWN VFW POST 308 SET UP A NEWTOWN/SANDY HOOK FAMILY RELIEF FUND

In response to the recent tragedy in Newtown, Conn., members of the town’s VFW Post are doing everything they can to provide comfort and security to the town’s grieving families.

Newtown Post 308 set up a Newtown/Sandy Hook Family Relief Fund to assist with the funeral costs for parents who did not have life insurance on their young children. If needed, some of the money will also help first responders. 

Post 308 members are also providing other services to the families, such as buying groceries for them, in an effort to allow the families time to grieve and heal.  

The tragedy Newtown endured was unimaginable and has touched the lives of every American. VFW Connecticut State Commander John Hollis said it is “an absolutely devastating event, not only for the families, but for the entire state of Connecticut.”
