CHARLOTTE, N.C. - People from Charlotte and the Carolinas are reaching out to help the families affected by the school shooting in Connecticut.
Terry Sartain is pastor of Horizon Christian Fellowship in Steele Creek, and a volunteer chaplain with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. He felt it was important to go to Newtown for his family.
“I have grandsons exactly the same age as the victims. I was just moved,” he said.
Outside the Newtown Fire House Monday, there were 26 Christmas trees decorated with teddy bears -- one for each victim. They were donated by someone from North Carolina, who wants to remain anonymous.
