"You know this is a difficult thing for the family to go through and it hurts even if you don't know them," said Gloria Garcia of Reedley.

The Orange Cove siblings were killed last Saturday in a horrific crash near Dinuba. Their parents survived.

A car wash in Reedley Saturday was just one of several fundraisers held throughout the Valley to help raise money for the family.

"It's better than I hoped for yeah. There's actually a couple of car washes going on today so we're actually pretty impressed for the turnout. It's awesome and it's for a good cause," said Savanna Powell, a friend of the Salazar family.

In Dinuba, drivers were lured by people holding up signs, including one that read, rest in peace, five little angels.

"I think it's amazing. That's what we need to do. That's what it should be about. It just come along side of them and just help them at a time when it's really needed," said family friend Jamie Puentes.

Donna Mireles of Dinuba said "It's indescribable. The love, the support, the prayers for the family members and as a community we are all experiencing to an extent their feelings."

At one Clovis home, members of La Raza, a civil rights group that raises money for the Hispanic community, joined the Salazar family in selling food; a sign that the community will continue to come together to help however and wherever they can. "It's a tragic thing. It is. It's a tragic thing and hopefully in time the pain will heal, it's going to be emotional for quite some time," said Eddie Alvarado with La Raza.

The car wash in Reedley raised $3,800.
