NEWTOWN, Conn.- More messages of hope and solidarity are pouring into Newtown, Conn., as the town prepares to observe Christmas Eve 10 days after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.

Two dozen children and six adults arrived at town hall Monday morning to deliver hundreds of handmade cards and snowflakes collected as they toured Connecticut in a charter bus.

Organizer Gwen Samuel of Meriden says it's a way to help the families of the 20 slain first-graders and six teachers while also allowing children from elsewhere in the state to express their feelings about the tragedy.

Newtown's town hall has become a gathering point for donations and people who just want to talk about what happened.

Building manager Karen Pierce says the deluge of donations and support has been helping the town get through it all.
