As news continues to emerge about the school shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, many Americans are eager to help in whatever way they can.

Some of the best advice – and some of the best reporting on this national tragedy – can be found at two local web sites in Newtown.

The Newtown Bee features “stories of heroism” on its web site. Newtown.patch includes breaking news, profiles, and information about a fund that has been set up to support the community.

United Way of Western Connecticut (UWWC) extends our most sincere condolences and prayers to all those families affected by the devastating events in Newtown/Sandy Hook, Connecticut,” writes David Deschenes, an official with UWWC, on Newtown.patch. “While the eyes of the world may be on Newtown/Sandy Hook, to our staff, volunteers and contributors, Newtown is home. We will stand with the community and everyone affected directly and indirectly by this senseless event as we face the days and weeks ahead.”
