Local girl raises money for victims of Hurricane Harvey 

Charlise Wise, 12, raised over $200 Saturday for victims of Hurricane Harvey. She, along with her grandmother Judy Wise, collected donations for bottles of water at the intersection near Keller Williams Reality and the park at Walden Lake for hours to raise money for the Salvation Army to use in the disaster relief. Judy Wise said her granddaughter was adamant they do something to help those suffering from the hurricane and volunteered to spend her Saturday in the Florida heat to raise the funds.
