February 6, 2014: The family of Timmy Sanson names The Josh Anderson Foundation as recipient of donations in lieu of flowers/gifts.

As a family who has suffered this devastating and tragic loss, we grieve with Timmy’s family and friends.  You are in our thoughts and prayers during this time of overwhelming sadness.

This reinforces the criticalness of The Josh Anderson Foundation’s mission in Fairfax County schools – and most recently, at Langley High School.   JAF is dedicated to providing the Langley community with the resources and support needed in all of their suicide prevention efforts.  As of 2/22/2014, over $6,000 has been donated.  #saxonstrong
