There can be too much of a good thing.

Newtown, Connecticut is asking that people temporarily stop donating gifts and school supplies because the town is overwhelmed with the volume.

Town officials say that ever since the horrific shooting, donations have been pouring in faster than they are able to process them.

Once they process the items, officials will then tell people how they can help.
