Whole Foods Market Danbury, Fairfield, and Westport will host a Kids' Day of Service Volunteer Initiative in conjunction with Sandy Hook Peaceful Arts. Sandy Hook Peaceful Arts, a non-profit organization, was founded after the tragedy in Sandy Hook. Sandy Hook Peaceful Arts provides opportunities for the community to collaborate, create, express, and experience the arts under the guidance of teaching artists. Sandy Hook Peaceful Arts also engages in and provides educational opportunities in peaceful practices to enhance overall well-being.
- Volunteers will have the opportunity to create various peace flags that will be centered around expressing gratitude and sharing peace.
- Peace flags created will be shared with local first responders, organizations, businesses, and individuals in Newtown and the surrounding communities who have fostered healing and peace.
- Participants will also engage in discussions about expressing gratitude and what it means to cultivate peace in our lives.
Participants are asked to bring a non-perishable food donation for the Newtown Food Bank.
