A Sandy Hook Initiative for Safer Schools


Thank you for your interest in supporting Safe and Sound! Fundraisers are a fun way to increase community awareness and participation in school safety.

All money received by Safe and Sound from third-party fundraisers goes directly toward the creation of free school safety tools and resources for schools!

We’ve compiled a list of ideas to help you plan. Email your own ideas to info@safeandsoundschools.org We’ll add them to the list here!
