Tech Valley High students commit ‘26 acts of kindness’

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. - In honor of the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy, students at Tech Valley High School are vowing to do plenty of good.

Joining a national movement, they're planning to commit "26 acts of kindness."

A wall at the school keeps a tally of all the student's good deeds, near photos of the shootings' victims.

"I decided that I would give up 26 hours to donate at the hospital for each of the lives lost," said Steven King, a sophomore at the school."

"We wanted to have some small good come out of this horrendous tragedy," said teacher Leah Penniman.

The wall will stay up for a week after students return from winter break, and it will then be packed up and sent to Newtown for the Sandy Hook Elementary Students.
