South Mountain High School freshman Ariana Segoviano took it upon herself to raise money for those affected by Hurricane Harvey, which made landfall in the Middle Texas Coast on August 25th, making it the first major storm to hit the area since Hurricane Celia 47 years ago.

Recent estimates show that Harvey’s damage could cost anywhere from $120 to $180 billion dollars and that number could rise.

Segoviano sold candles to family members to collect the donation funds.

“I raised the money because I thought the poor people didn’t have any food, didn’t have any stuff to wear, don’t have any money to do what [they’re] supposed to do,” she said. “It’s so important.”

Segoviano sold a total of 10 candles and her fundraising resulted in a donation of $100 to the American Red Cross. She shared some of the reactions she received from her family after donating the money.

“They were very happy. They were proud of me,” she said. “I’m very proud of myself.”
