SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Nine children in the ArkLaTex will be without their mother again this Christmas, after she was fatally shot on Easter in 2021.

Jalecia Jennings was shot and killed after an argument in a parking lot on Hearne Avenue in Shreveport.

This year, the nonprofit group Moms on a Mission wants to bring some holiday cheer to Jenning’s children by helping them fulfill their Christmas lists.

”This holiday season, we know that this is a very depressing time of year for some people. Just imagine if you watch your mom get killed in cold blood and you no longer have your mom, so it’s kind of like your lifeline is minimal. If it’s in your heart, please reach out, give back to one of the kids. We just ask you to choose one, sponsor them. If you can’t get everything on the list, just get something,” said Yolanda George, president.
