Maryland neighborhood makes snowflakes for Sandy Hook victims

GAITHERSBURG, Md. -- We are just over a week removed from the second deadliest school shooting in U.S. history, and folks all over are helping Newtown, Connecticut recover.

Saturday, a neighborhood in Maryland made snowflakes for the kids who survived that school shooting.

The snowflakes, made out of paper, are being designed by children nearly the same age as some of the kids killed last week.

They just want to help take this tragedy off of everyone's minds.

"We want to be part of that movement to make that location beautiful for them. And maybe take their minds off what happened. And brighten their day," said Valeria Dugan, Green Jeans Children's Boutique. "There's going to be a winter wonderland. And hopefully they're going to get snowflakes from across the world."

The middle-schoolers at Sandy Hook are set to resume school in a brand new building sometime next year.
