ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A nonprofit founded by the parents of slain Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington is selling T-shirts to promote personal safety education and advocacy.

Help Save the Next Girl operates out of the Harrington family’s basement in Roanoke and the home of Harrington’s art teacher in Blacksburg.

Media outlets report that the group will begin selling its “Team Justice” T-shirts on Monday, the fifth anniversary of the discovery of Harrington’s body in a field in Albemarle County.

The 20-year-old Harrington disappeared while attending a concert in Charlottesville in October 2009.

Ian Heflin with the nonprofit says it began with 20 people and now has 20 chapters.
