NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — A school violence prevention program started by parents whose children were killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre is receiving a $25,000 donation.

The gift from the Wireless Zone Foundation will be presented to Sandy Hook Promise on Monday.

The donation is earmarked to support the training of youth and adults in Sandy Hook Promise's Know the Signs program, which is designed to help decrease violence, bullying, and other forms of victimization, while strengthening school communities.

More than 7.5 million people in more than 14,000 schools and youth organizations have gone through the training, learning techniques to reduce bullying and cyberbullying and help identify those as risk to commit violence, including school shootings.
