Fundraiser collects donations for mother, infant killed in Smithfield

Posted: Updated:

SMITHFIELD, N.Y. -- An online fundraiser has been launched for the family of a woman who was killed along with her infant daughter when a tornado destroyed their home.

A relative started the effort on the fundraising website gofundme.com for the parents and 11-year-old daughter of Kimberly DeGroat.

She and her baby, 4-month-old Paris, were killed when the tornado touched down in Smithfield. Her parents and older daughter weren't home at the time.

Two people living in separate homes also were killed, including a 70-year-old woman who was related to Kimberly.

So far just under $30,000 has been raised. The money will go directly to Kimberly’s parents.
