Cheerleaders in Lancaster County are doing what they can to help the victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.
Girls from Manheim Township Extreme say they’re doing what they can to bring a little cheer to the kids who survived that shocking ordeal.
“We were all talking about how we really wanted to do something for the kids at Sandy Hook, so we came up with the idea so they have something to hold onto,” said cheerleader Ashley Smith.
The girls say they plan to send the bears to the school directly and are hoping to raise about 700.
