article imageNew England Patriots' owner to donate $25K to assist Sandy Hook

By Owen Weldon     Dec 17, 2012 in World
The owner of the football team, The New England Patriots, plans on donating $25,000 to help Newtown, Connecticut and its people.
According to NFL, Jonathan Kraft owns the team, but his family also owns the Rand-Whitney corrugated box plant in Newtown, and the plant is located just a mile from where the tragedy occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
According to CBS, Kraft said that he thinks that the adults who lost their children in the tragedy are very important as well as the future of the school and how it moves forward is also important. Kraft then said that it is not up to him to make the decision on what to do with the money but they are going to help.
According to Boston Herald, the New England Patriots also honored the 26 victims before last night's game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Players were special decals on the back of their helmets. The decals had the Newtown logo, and it was alongside a black ribbon. Before the game started a moment of silence was held and 26 white flares were sent up to the sky from the highest point of Gillette Stadium.
