BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

Two ArkLaTex youths have raised nearly $3,000 for Hurricane Harvey relief.

Taylor Henry, 9, of Bossier City, says her goal is $10,000.

Her brother Jax has doubled his original $100 goal and raised more than $200.

She is sewing then selling tissue box holders and sending the money to a church down south.

Her brother Jax is making bookmarks.

The two youths participated in opening day Sept. 23 at HomeTown Market of Haughton in Haughton Town Hall.

On Sept. 30, they will be at Red River Quilters' annual quilt show at Riverview Hall in downtown Shreveport.

Taylor Henry has been asked to demonstrate her project there at 11 a.m. that day.

At the end of October, the youths and their family plan to travel to Houston to deliver what they have raised.
