PHOENIX - The family of a murder victim is reaching out this Labor Day to feed the homeless in honor of their lost loved one.
Joelle Morgia was shot to death in a drive-by shooting at a family gathering near 43rd Avenue and Northern in December of 2008. His family tells ABC15 they turned away some people they didn't know who tried to join the party and they opened fire.
Morgia's brother Daniel Udave said his brother would often give money to people on the street in need. That is why the family started doing an annual BBQ on Labor Day.
The family gathered as much money as they could to buy dozens of hotdogs and burgers to feed to homeless people in University Park near 12th Avenue and Van Buren.
"It feels good to do this," said Romana Udave, Morgia's sister. "It's all we can do."
This is the second year the family held a BBQ for the homeless and they intend on making it an annual event.
No arrests have ever been made in Morgia's death.
