Members of the Black fraternity and sorority community across the nation are raising money to assist the family of DeEbony Groves who was killed yesterday by a domestic terrorist at a Waffle House near Nashville along with three other people.
Sorority sisters have assisted the family of Groves by setting up a GoFundMe for donations for the funeral of the Delta Sigma Theta member who was set to graduate from Belmont University next month.
“In the early morning hours of April 22nd, 2018 the life of our dear Daughter, Sister and friend was cut short due to a senseless act of violence. DeEbony was an amazing young woman with an incredibly bright future ahead of her,” the GoFundMe states. “She was an upstanding member or Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. and set to graduate from Belmont University next month. The loss of DeEbony is insurmountable, she touched so many lives, and she will never be forgotten or replaced. At this extremely difficult time we ask if making a donation is at all possible to go twoards the celebration of DeEbonys life it is greatly appreciated. Her loved ones genuinely appreciate each and every one of you guys during this time. Thank you. God Bless.”
We at Watch The Yard implore individual members of Black fraternities and sororities to donate as much as they can to help the family reach their goal of 10,000 dollars on behalf of yourselves, your chapters and your communities.
No one deserves this pain. We as a community will be here for her family.
