SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) — Abby Beulke has been a homeless advocate for years now, not only befriending the less fortunate but also bringing them care packages and food.

But what's most impressive about Abby is she started this work at the age of five. She’s now 11 years old.

In this week's Change It Up report, News 8’s Eric Kahnert highlights Abby's incredible work and the big impact she's made over the years.

News 8 is celebrating San Diegans making a difference and having a positive impact in our communities.
