The Story Behind The Story

As Christmas approaches, a community has rallied to bring cheer to a family impacted by recent tragedy. Martha Sanchez, 39, was two weeks away from her 40th birthday when she was fatally shot during a robbery at the store she worked at in September. Now, her home community, rallying around her husband of 20 years and her children, are doing what they can to make this holiday a little easier. The community, including LAPD officers, Pasadena City College volunteers and the hospital that cared for Sanchez, have donated an entire room of gifts for the family. Suraya Fadel Reporting
