Children of Change: 6-year-old leading toy drive for Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — When Ellie Boyd was just 4 years old, she raised money for the American Red Cross, while also hosting a blood drive. We featured her in February of 2020 in one of our Children of Change segments.

Ellie is now six, and her giving heart is focused on children at CHKD in Norfolk. From now through December 11, Ellie is hosting a toy drive.
