Cherry Hill, New Jersey salon owner Wanda Mora collects items to help people in need across Texas

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.

Kim Brown is the third generation to run the family business. She grew up at Dean’s Beauty Salon in Northeast Portland, which was founded in 1954 by her grandparents Benjamin and Mary “Rose” Dean from Birmingham, Alabama.

Benjamin came to Oregon in the 1940s to work in the Kaiser shipyards, as did many Black families who settled in Portland. Rose started doing hair at home and Benjamin got his barber’s license.
