Scranton, Lackawanna County - Dozens of people, young and old, came together Wednesday for a special purpose in Scranton.
The Scranton Area Moms of Munchkins teamed-up with the Jewish Community Center for a special project called "Snowflakes for Sandy Hook Elementary."
The task was an easy one but the meaning of the event gave it a deeper purpose.
"This brings the spirit of a child into the picture here, of children supporting other children," Jewish Community Center Executive Director Dan Cardonick said.
The event served as a fundraiser for the people affected by a school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut last month.
"I think all of us want to feel as though we're showing support and solidarity for the other moms who suffered this tragedy," mother Emily Karam said.
The students were very excited to take part.
"I had stamps, colorings and stickers on my snowflake," Owen Heppen said.
"It looked like it had triangles on the top and bottom," Brooke Schlesser said.
People paid one dollar for each snowflake that was made The money will go to benefit a fund set-up in the wake of the Newtown shooting.
While most of the snowflakes will be hung up around the JCC, officials are considering sending some to Connecticut as a token of their love.
"We care. We care. Those children make us think of our own children and we really want to do something to help them," Cardonick said.
