WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The owner of Tmuffin, a playgroup in Wilmington, is working on sending boxes full of love to Newtown Connecticut. Gaby Merediz says her husband is from the town, and when she heard about the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary school she was shocked and devastated.

Merediz wanted to do something to help, so she decided to have the kids that come to Tmuffin draw pictures and write notes for the students, teachers and staff at Sandy Hook Elementary school. All of the heart shaped letters and pictures will then be mailed in boxes to the school.

"The people in Newtown need love, and so I thought lets make art with hearts and flood them with love," said Merediz.

She says that she will be working with schools to get classes to write notes and draw pictures as well. Anyone else who wants to write a note can drop it off at Tmuffin, located at 2133 Wrightsville Avenue.

She hopes to send the first box on Wednesday.
