On behalf of the NEIT Criminal Justice Club, we would like to thank all of you that responded to our book drive in memory of those that were killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. As a result of your overwhelming support of this initiative, we were able to collect a total of 984 books. This far exceeded our initial goal.
As many of you may know, the Newtown CT community was overwhelmed with donations and requested that any other donations be distributed locally in memory of the lives lost. As a result, our books were donated to the West Warwick Public Library and the Hasbro Children’s Hospital. The donations were accompanied by a framed NEIT Certificate which acknowledges the donation being made in memory of the lives lost at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown CT, December 14, 2012.
Both locations will display the certificate and each book will be affixed with a placard acknowledging the in memoriam.
