From Dallas To Sandy Hook With Love
CBS's 103.7 Lite FM in Dallas-Fort Worth is collecting Valentine’s Day cards for the students at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Since late January, more than 10,000 have poured into the station from North Texas and beyond. Morning Man Tony Zazza spearheaded the "Hearts of Hope" idea and says, "What I thought might be a few hundred cards sending our thoughts turned into a mountain of love from our giving listeners to these amazing kids and faculty at Sandy Hook.
Zazza says cards came in from as far away as New Jersey and Louisiana. Zazza created the effort to remind the children who survived the tragic shootings that they are still remembered and loved. The first 10,000 cards have already been sent to the school, but with more still arriving in the mail each day, additional shipments will soon be sent. “They may be a little ‘tardy,’ but they’ll still bring smiles to children’s faces in Newtown,” Zazza said.
