NEWTOWN, Connecticut– There has been an overwhelming show of support to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting, over the past two weeks.

Thousands have donated items and money in honor of the victims.

Now, it’s been announced that those flowers, letters, prayers, signs, photos, teddy bears and more, will be gathered and processed into soil that will serve in the foundation of a future permanent memorial to honor the 20 children and 6 adults.

26 people were shot and killed Dec. 14, when a gunman opened fire inside Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.

Donations can still be made to the United Way.
