STEWARTVILLE, Minn.- A community's support for a family who's gone through the unimaginable.
43-year-old Rachel Harberts and her daughter Emerson were killed in a crash a little over a month ago. It happened on highway 14 when authorities say the family was rear ended by a vehicle. That accident left Harbert's son Jaxon severely injured.
Today, A local high school is raising money for the family and also using this as a lesson for students to always practice safe driving.

“While we can't replace what they lost we hope that our monetary donations are able to help them in this tragedy in some way,” said Sarah Johnson.

She’s a speech and language pathologist at the high school and is happy how the students came together to support the Harberts family.
“I was blown away but the amount of support,” she said.
They don’t plan to stop there, they’re also planning to collect donations at volleyball and football games tonight and tomorrow. All proceeds going to the family.
