The family of Ethan Griffith names The Josh Anderson Foundation as recipient of donations in lieu of flowers/gifts – as of May 27th, almost $4,000 has been collected.
As a family who has suffered this devastating and tragic loss, we grieve with the family, friends, teachers, counselors and administrators of Ethan Griffith. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this time of overwhelming sadness.
The death of Ethan Griffith reinforces the criticalness of The Josh Anderson Foundation’s mission in Fairfax County schools – and most recently, at Woodson High School. JAF is dedicated to providing the Woodson community with the resources and support needed in all of their suicide prevention efforts.
See Ethan’s mom’s letter which is an impassioned plea for us to address and eradicate teen suicide, the third leading cause of teenage deaths.
With our deepest condolences,
The Anderson Family
