SANDY HOOK, Conn. (WTNH)– During this time of uncertainty over the coronavirus, News 8 understands that people are stressed, and need some positives to focus on.
On Tuesday, neighbors, family and friends all made sure an 11-year-old Sandy Hook girl, named Riley, still had a great birthday, despite not being able to celebrate at school or have a birthday party.
Riley’s older brother and sister had drawn up a letter and delivered it to their neighbors asking them to put a sign, or something similar, outside of their homes wishing Riley a happy birthday.
With the help of Riley’s aunt, her family was also able to arrange for a barrage of 50 plus letters and packages from other family members and friends, all to be delivered by mail for Riley to open.
