NEWTOWN - The United Way of Western Connecticut announced Friday that it's donating $200,000 to the Newtown community.

Officials say most of the money will be used to support people who were so traumatized they can no longer work and to help them pay for counseling. 

The donation is separate from the Sandy Hook School Support fund, which organizers say has raised $8.5 million. 

Officials say there won't be any dispersals from that fund for at least two months to ensure the money is used responsibly.
