PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A group of Philadelphia mothers got together Sunday afternoon to work on a care package that will be sent to the mother of Trayvon Martin.
The effort was put together by a local community activist, who wanted to send love and support to Sybrina Fulton.
Sabrina Hugh of God’s Blessing says as a mother of two, she can only imagine the pain that Sybrina Fulton is going through after losing her son.
Regardless of race, or thoughts on the George Zimmerman verdict, Hugh says she just wants to support another woman going through a tough time:
“I’m a woman first. So anything that will upset, or cause a conflict in another woman’s life I would like to be there to support her and show her that I care.”
She then went on to explain exactly how they put the care package together.
“I wanted women to reach deep into their hearts, and to put together a package that will say ‘we’re here for you, we’re understanding your pain, and we’ve got your back’.”
Hugh’s says her group tries to stay active in the local community, visiting families affected by violence to show them they are not alone, and that someone does care.
