Marion teen collects books for Hurricane Harvey victims

MARION, Iowa (KCRG TV9)-- A Marion 13-year-old needs help delivering books down to Houston.

Selena Killham is collecting books for victims of Hurricane Harvey.

She's collected more than 3,000 so far but she's having trouble with the second part of her project: sending the books.

Selena says every person that signs up to help deliver the books ends up backing out.

But she’s still hopeful the kids will have the books by Christmas.

"I'm from Texas so I feel bad for my friends that don't have books, or don't have anything to read, or have been affected by the Hurricane,” Selena said.

Selena already has a list of schools and libraries in Texas that are eager to accept these books.
