Because of the overwhelming demand for a place to send a card or letter of condolence to those affected by the tragedy in Newtown, the U.S. Postal Service has set up a special address for just that purpose.

“We understand that there is an outpouring of support for everyone in the Newtown area and we hope to make it easier for those who wish to send encouragement and messages of compassion to those affected,” Kimberly J. Peters, Connecticut Valley District Manager for the U.S. Postal Service, said in a statement.

“Through letters and cards, families will be able to hold that friendship in their hands and to read those kind words at a time and place that supports their pace of healing.”

The dedicated post-office box will help Newtown’s post-office staff handle the enormous amount of mail they are expecting.

From there, the USPS will work with local community groups to help distribute the mail.
Here is the address:

Messages of Condolence for Newtown
PO Box 3700
Newtown, CT 06470

Mail sent directly to Sandy Hook Elementary School, where the shootings took place, will be delivered directly to the school.
