Family of 9-Year-Old Girl Killed in Pine Hills Begins Food Distribution in Her Honor
The family of Tiana Majors, the 9-year-old girl who was tragically killed in a shooting in her Pine Hills home in February, has started a food distribution program for the homeless in Orlando.
Tiana was known for her giving spirit, and her family wanted to honor her memory by continuing her legacy of generosity.
On Sunday, Tiana’s family and volunteers from the Moms Demand Action organization cooked and packed hot meals, which they then hand-delivered to the homeless community near Paramore.
The family hopes to make this a tradition through the Yaya Foundation, in honor of Tiana.
Tiana’s mother, Brandy Major, said that Tiana was always giving away her toys and clothes to others in need.
“She was just a giver,” Major said.
“She wanted everybody to have what she had.”
Tiana’s family and friends have been rallying around each other in the wake of her tragic death.
“We’ve always been a supportive family,” Major said.
“So this is what we do, and that’s how Tiana learned to be so loving from her loving family.”
Despite their grief, the family is choosing to be led by purpose over pain.
“Instead of being hopeless, we hope to make this giveaway a tradition,” Major said.
“This is Tiana’s village, so we want to make it a bigger village for not just Tiana, but for Orlando.”
Tiana’s death was a heartbreaking loss for her family and the community, but her spirit of giving lives on through this food distribution program.
The family hopes that it will continue to bring joy and nourishment to those in need, in honor of Tiana’s memory.
