SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - News 8 is celebrating everyday people who are making a big impact in the San Diego community through a new segment called, Change It Up. 

Thanks to the public's nominations, a new San Diegan doing great work in the community has been picked. 

Eric Kahnert introduces us to one such Change It Up Champion named, Jaci Feinstein. Jaci created Hands on San Diego to make it easier for San Diegans to get connected with volunteer opportunities. HandsOn San Diego works with local nonprofits, schools and parks to identify group volunteer projects. These projects may be ongoing or one-time.
