The Newtown Lions Club Foundation Sandy Hook Elementary Fund in partnership with the The Newtown Rotary Club, and The Newtown Memorial Fund will:
 
  • Pay the counseling cost not covered by insurance (copays, etc.)
  • Pay for counseling costs for individuals that do not have insurance
  • Help families find licensed mental health professional in their area
There were approximately 600 children and staff in Sandy Hook Elementary School at the time of the shooting and among those were 12 surviving children in classrooms that witnessed these horrific events. Additionally there were hundreds of first responders including police, fire, and volunteers, that were deeply effected the morning of the shooting. It is the children, staff, and families of the Sandy Hook Elementary School population as well as the first responders and their families, that are most in need of the services the Newtown Lions Club Foundation is assisting with.

The Newtown Lions Club Foundation has dispersed funds for counseling in excess of 250 individuals in the in the past year since the tragedy. Our current outlay is over $30,000 a month and a total of $245,000 in 2013. At this rate we estimate that our annual needs will be over $250,000 a year. It is predicted that we may need to provide this assistance for a period of up to ten years. As a result we revised our monetary goal to $3,000,000 over ten years.  Please help us help those who are in the greatest need by making your tax deductible donation at the donate button above or by check to the Newtown Lions Club Foundation, P.O.
