NEWTOWN, Conn. - People moved by the deadly mass shooting at a Newtown elementary school have found ways to console and help grieving residents during the holiday.

Well-wishers from around the country showed up Christmas morning to hang ornaments on a series of memorial Christmas trees while police officers from around the state took extra shifts to direct traffic, patrol the town and give local police a break.

Faith Leonard drove to Newtown from Gilbert, Ariz., to hand out Christmas cookies, children's gifts and hugs on Tuesday.

Leonard says her work in Newtown might allow others to spend more time with their family.

Police don't know why Adam Lanza killed 26 people at the school, his mother and himself on Dec. 14.
