Plan Approved For Conn. School Shooting Donations

Posted: Updated:

NEWTOWN, Ct. - Families of the 26 children and educators killed in the Connecticut school shooting will receive $281,000 each under a plan for dividing up $7.7 million in donations.
    
Also, the families of 12 surviving children who witnessed the Dec. 14 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School will each get $20,000. Two staff members who were injured will get $75,000 each.
    
A community foundation released the plan Wednesday, following a preliminary proposal last week and its approval Monday by the foundation board.
    
The foundation was asked to divide up more than $11 million raised with the help of the United Way. Committees will decide how the rest will be used.
    
Twenty-year-old Adam Lanza shot his mother at their home before assaulting school children and staff, then killing himself. His motive remains unclear.
