Fundraisers set up to help children whose parents were killed in car accident

Randy and Becky Harrier died in a car accident Sunday by the Orleans County Fairgrounds after being rear-ended.

KENT – The community is rallying behind the Harrier family, which suffered the loss of husband and wife, Randy and Becky Harrier, from a car accident Sunday on Route 31 by the Orleans County 4-H Fairgrounds.

The Harriers have three children: Andrew, 18; Kari, 14; and Amber, 10. Andrew recently graduated from Kendall. His two sisters are students at Kendall.

“It’s been very tragic for all of us in the community,” said family friend, Dawn Gardner.

A GoFundMe has been established to help the family and the three kids. At 4:50 p.m. today, 131 donors had given $6,555 to support to the cause. (Click here for more information.)

A meal train has also been set up, and community members have committed to providing meals through mid-October with more openings available after that. (Click here for more information.)

Kendall will also be accepting nonperishable food items, cash donations, toiletries and cleaning products at the Concession Hut at home soccer games until Sept. 30. T-shirts for $10 will also be for sale during homecoming next week, Sept. 30, with proceeds going to the family.


Gardner said additional fundraisers are being planned. Gardner, Jessica Mitchell, Sharon Kuhn and Paula Browe are coordinating the fundraisers.

“We want to help the family,” Gardner said. “Randy and Becky were known for their smiles, their laughter and for bending over backwards for other people even when they were struggling themselves.”
