Tommy Moose Aids Children of Sandy Hook

On Wednesday evening, Dec. 19, Russell delivered nine cases, each containing a dozen Tommy dolls, to Reed Intermediate School in Newtown, where counseling sessions with children are being held.

Hello Everyone,

Connecticut Moose Association Secretary Aaron Russell is also the Governor of Danbury, CT Lodge 1373 -- which is just 15 miles from Newtown  and the Sandy Hook Elementary School, the site of the Dec. 14 slayings of 20  young children and 6 adults.

In the wake of this horrible event, Moose members across the  continent have been asking "what can we do to help?"; and so Russell has agreed to serve as coordinator to receive,  hopefully, several hundred Tommy Moose plush dolls to ultimately distribute to  as many children of the Newton, CT community as possible.

On Wednesday evening, Dec. 19, Russell delivered nine cases, each containing a dozen Tommy dolls, to Reed Intermediate School in Newtown, where counseling sessions with children are being held. "I was met with a very warm reception from all of the workers  there," Russell said. "They were very appreciative of the donation and were very  impressed with the Tommy Moose program."
