CHERRY HILL, New Jersey (WABC) — The owner of a beauty salon in New Jersey jumped in to help people in need across Texas.

For Wanda Mora, the mission is very personal after her own family was greatly impacted by Hurricane Maria in 2017.

“I lost my father to the hurricane, and we did a lot of work over there. I know firsthand what it is to suffer,” she said.

Her salon, Mora Salon, is holding a drive to collect warm items like hats, scarves and space heaters that will be shipped to two shelters in Texas.

The items will go to the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center and another shelter in Bach Springs.
