Students at Golden Glades Elementary School received toys for the holidays, thanks to the Jada Page Foundation.

Jada, 8, was killed in a drive-by shooting five years ago in Northwest Miami-Dade. She was sitting on her father's front porch when they were wounded.

A bullet struck Jada in the back of her head, and her father, who police say was the intended target, was shot int he chest and survived. 

On Thursday, Jada's mother, Rosalind Brown, hosted a toy giveaway honoring her daughter's memory. 

"Being able to see the kids, you know, the smilies on their faces," Brown said. "I know that she would love this, I can imagine her bouncing around this room."

Jada's younger sister Jazz was only 3 years old when her sister died. She was by her mom's side for the toy giveaway.

"Jada would be very proud," Jazz said.
