“We understand that there is an outpouring of support for everyone in the Newtown area and we hope to make it easier for those who wish to send encouragement and messages of compassion to those affected,” Kimberly J. Peters, Connecticut Valley District Manager for the U.S. Postal Service, said in a statement.
“Through letters and cards, families will be able to hold that friendship in their hands and to read those kind words at a time and place that supports their pace of healing.”
The dedicated post-office box will help Newtown’s post-office staff handle the enormous amount of mail they are expecting.
From there, the USPS will work with local community groups to help distribute the mail.
