A Chicago-area community is joining together to help two sisters from the suburb of Riverwoods who were victims of a horrific, train crash in Spain.

The derailment killed 79 people last month.

8-year-old Maria and 11-year-old Lucia Dominguez were on board travelling with relatives.

School District 109 is supporting parents in a fundraising effort to help cover medical costs.

About $43,000 dollars has been raised so far.
