SPOKANE, Wash. - An 8-year-old Spokane girl was named a Hasbro Community Action Hero for her volunteer efforts.
According to a press release, Violet Humble "wanted to see kindness ripple, so she rallied family and friends to help the homeless population of Spokane. In the past year, she assisted nearly 250 homeless people per week by distributing thousands of toiletries and snack bags, serving 900 meals and raising over $4,000."
Ten kids were named as this year's recipients of the Hasbro Community Action Heroes awards. Each child receives a $1,000 educational scholarship as well as a $500 grant to the nonprofit of their choice.
