East Ascension High School raised money from its faculty vs. student basketball game to send to Sandy Hook Elementary School, the site of a school shooting on Dec. 14 that left 20 students dead.

The school’s buses were with decorated green and white wreaths, each one unique, in honor of each of the victims in the recent Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Newtown, Conn. Green and white are Sandy Hook’s school colors, school official said.
