WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A Wilmington business is packing up and shipping out loads of love to Newtown, CT.
Tmuffin owner Gaby Merediz is from Connecticut and says after she heard about the shooting she knew she needed to do something to help. She decided to focus her energy on sending love and support to the community and got kids in the area in on the project.
"We just wanted to send out some love," Merediz said. "We wanted the people of newtown to know that we were thinking about them. We thought about sending money or sending school supplies, but none of that really meant as much as sending them support and sending them love."
Merediz sent the first couple of boxes of heart-shaped gifts to Newtown today.
She says she spoke to school officials in Connecticut who say they will hang the artwork in the new school for Sandy Hook students so they can see it when they return to class.
If you are interested in sending some love, you can drop it off at Tmuffin at 2133 Wrightsville Avenue.
