Outpouring of support for family of Lumberton sisters killed in crash

LUMBERTON - by Leslie Rangel

Young and old came together at Lumberton High School to support the family of two sister killed in a crash.

"We've never met the family until after the accident, but just being mothers, we wanted to do what we could just to help," Teresa Lee, an organizer said.

A deadly crash that killed two sisters and an unborn child brought a community together to help. Dawn Sterling, the mother of the two sisters, was critically injured in the crash.

"When I drove past the accident and saw the car, which my daughter drives the same kind of car, it terrified me and I called Kathy and it just kind of snow balled from there but I guess just the relief made me want to do what we could to make this benefit better."

There were T-shirts, bracelets, even a live auction.

"Everywhere I turn around, someone is giving me cash, check," Lee says.

The idea for a fundraiser bought in more than $90,000.

"Thought we were just going to do something small and by the time we made a Facebook page, it just exploded," Lee said.

Those who knew the girls are helping anyway they can.

"It means a lot because I knew Courtney and she was my best friend and I knew Connely and so we were all really close," Maci McCurley says.

There was love from strangers for the girls' mother, who is still in the hospital recovering. 

"We just hope this makes her realize how much she is loved," Lee said.

The girl's father was at the benefit. He told us to pass along a message of gratitude for the continuous support.
