HAMPTON -- A local woman is donating thousands of dollars to Hurricane Harvey victims with disabilities, inspired by the generosity she received 12 years ago when a car crash left her paralyzed.

Anita Conant, 59, of Hampton, is giving $10,000 to the Houston Center for Independent Living (HCIL), a nonprofit that has worked with people with disabilities for the last four decades. She said she was moved to give when she saw news reports of people with disabilities and elderly people in nursing homes trapped in rising water in the Houston area.
