RIDGEFIELD, Conn., Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- People in the Newtown Community should go to http://hamlethub.com/newtownhelp to find a list of free resources to help the residents of Newtown heal in the aftermath of the tragedy on December 14.

If you have products or services you would like to offer the Newtown community, please submit them to the HamletHub Helpers webpage at http://hamlethub.com/newtown-offer-your-services.  HamletHub Helpers developed this resource to coordinate the overwhelming number of charitable offers for the Newtown Community with those who need help.

"There is an overwhelming outpouring of support, and HamletHub Helpers can help to make the process more efficient," said Kerry Anne Ducey, HamletHub founder.

The site contains various ways people can help the Newtown Community, in addition to providing a place for people to list their business or service as a resource for those that require assistance.

Tom Martin, who is the director of HamletHub Helpers, planned on marking the beginning of 2013 by introducing a new feature for HamletHub called "Hub Helpers." The timeline was moved forward after seeing the countless examples of compassion and generosity -- once again, neighbors helping neighbors.

HamletHub launched the first local news "Hub" in Ridgefield in 2009 and developed it into a model to be expanded into other communities.  Sixteen Local Editors now manage HamletHub sites in Connecticut.

Earlier this year, HamletHub won a prestigious Connecticut Press Club Award for original journalism on the Web.
