Let's help Maekele's Family

Maekele Embaye was shot outside his home on Sunday, May 12, 2019, around 11:24 PM. After being hospitalized for a couple of days and he passed away on Tuesday, May 14, 2019. He was a dedicated, loving husband, father, son, brother and friend. 

Maekele survived by his wife and two children. He worked hard to support his family and wanted his wife and children to have the best of everything and was the sole provider of the house...

With all the emotional pain and stress that death brings, it also brings financial burdens. We are trying to raise money for his wife and their children to support with their daily needs.


It is in these times of loss and sadness when you see people coming together to help one another make it through, to support the people we care for. We are thankful for any support you may be able to provide. We also encourage everyone to keep their family in their thoughts and prayers.
