Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs will join others in helping serve Christmas dinner to the family of Sharon Staples, who was shot and killed last year by juveniles during a street robbery. Ms. Staples, who was pregnant with twins at the time of her death, is survived by seven children who were being raised by their grandfather, Elmo Staples, who just recently passed away.
The dinner will be at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, December 25 at Paje Restaurant, 2213 N. Martin Luther King Dr.
“Understandably, the family has been devastated by the loss of their mother and their grandfather, who was their caregiver after Ms. Staples passed,” Alderwoman Coggs said. “This dinner, provided in cooperation with Peace for Change Alliance, is a small act of kindness from the community and a way to give the children a great meal and a bit of a sense of community during the holidays.”
What: Christmas dinner
When: 6:00 p.m., Tuesday, December 25
Where: Paje Restaurant, 2213 N. MLK Dr.
