    The US postal service has created an outlet for an outpouring of emotion following the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

    Business News Daily reports that the Newtown post office has been taking calls all day from people wanting to send letters, care packages and drawings from children.

    But where do they send them?

    On Monday, the Postal Service dedicated a post office box to the town.

    If you'd like to send your own condolences, the address is:

    P.O. Box 3700
    Newtown, Connecticut 06470.

    The Newtown post office is expecting an enormous amount of mail.
