Khloe Kardashian isn’t letting the drama surrounding her husband and crumbling marriage affect her charity work. The reality star has taken to her Instagram account to pledge $20,000 to the family of Martha Sanchez who was fatally gunned down during a robbery at her work. Martha was shot inside the Happy Bargain 99 Cent Store in Los Angeles as she finished her work shift. The murderer was attempting to rob the store when he gunned her down in a senseless act and stole $400 from the register. Police have been searching for the killer of the mother of the five.
Khloe posted the following to her Instagram account with a picture of Martha:
Meet Martha Sanchez, 39 year old mother of 5 who was gunned down last Tuesday in South Central, LA while working at a 99 cent store. Martha was robbed at gunpoint and shot multiple times in what was described as one of the worst slayings ever seen by 1st medics on the scene. Martha worked at the 99 cent store for roughly two years. She was incredibly loved and played an active role in her community. This story was brought to me by a friend. Immediately my heart broke for her loved ones. Now Martha leaves behind a husband and five children. @thedocumentary, @Lala, @gwadpot and myself are donating $20,000 to assist the family with funeral costs as well as any other arrangements they may need in such a tragic occurrence. If you would like to read more on this story go to http://touch.latimes.com/section/-1/article/p2p-77464569/ follow @therobinhoodproject we are all in this together! @thedocumentary you are incredible! Stay blessed everyone! The senselessness has got to stop. LOVE #TheRobinHoodProject”
It’s nice to see celebrities doing something for their communities. I’m hoping police can find Martha’s killer and bring peace to her family.
