Justice for Murdered Children will continue its practice of giving comfort to families in Los Angeles County that have lost a loved one to murder.
In previous years it has been one the nonprofit’s commitments to provide Thanksgiving dinner baskets to the families in hopes that it will help them get through holiday in the midst of their loss.
With the economy being as bad has been this year, requests for assistance from these families have grown enormously.
Justice for Murdered Children has united with radio station KJLH , Councilwoman Jan Perry and state Sen. Roderick Wright offices to provide turkeys to the families of these victims. On Monday, Nov. 21, from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m., turkeys will be given away at the 77th Street Police Station, 7600 S. Broadway, in the Community Room.
Radio station KJLH will conduct a live remote from 7 a.m. until 8 a.m. A press conference will be held immediately after the broadcast.
If you know of a family that has had a loved one murdered and is in need of a turkey basket for Thanksgiving, call 310-547-5362 to have their name placed on the list.
