In the wake of the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, Cornell’s caring community can help make a difference by sending sympathy cards.
If you are interested in writing a sympathy card, bring it to the drop box outside of 130 Day Hall, near the mailroom, until 4:00 p.m. on Friday, Dec 21. A staff member is attending a candlelight vigil in Newtown CT on Christmas night and will deliver the cards.
The sympathy cards aren't only going to those who have lost loved ones, but to those who were affected by this tragedy like law enforcement, clergy, therapists and so many more. People simply scarred for life. The sympathy cards will convey the words of encouragement, and let them know they are in our hearts, thoughts and prayers.
You can also donate candles for the vigils that will be happening in their area.
Feel free to pass this message to your colleagues and friends.
