The Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters is reminding local residents to be wary of people who say they’re raising money for the hospital door-to-door.

The hospital has learned that individuals are going door to door in the Hampton Roads area falsely fundraising for the hospital.

“CHKD never engages in door-to-door fundraising, nor do we benefit from any door-to-door magazine or book sales,” said Nancy Chapman with the Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters.

Residents who are approached by a door-to-door fundraiser they do not believe to be legitimate should ask to see the solicitor’s permit, city spokeswoman Debbie George said. If still not convinced, residents should call the police department’s non-emergency number at 923-2350, ext. 0.
