Rhode Islanders are doing their part to honor the lives of those lost at the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting last year.

In Pawtucket, "The Quality Hill Neighborhood Wish Tree" is holding its 2nd annual lighting in memory of the innocent lives lost last year.

On Saturday at 6:00 p.m., the community is encouraged to bring a special ornament, make a wish, and help trim the tree.

The tree will be lit and songs sung by students at J.M.W High School.

It's all taking place at 30 Potter Street in Pawtucket.

Meanwhile, Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy has encouraged citizens across the country to perform an act of kindness on this one year anniversary of the deadly shooting.
