There has been an outpouring of goodwill and Christmas cheer from across the country for the community of Newtown, Conn.

The town is still grieving the loss of 20-students and six educators in a shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The community has received money, toys, food and other gifts from as far away as Alaska.

The town is receiving six times the normal volume of mail.
