Hundreds of Universal Studios Hollywood Employee Volunteers Pay it Forward by Welcoming 300 Homeless School Children from Operation School Bell in Support of Theme Park’s 15th Annual “Day of Giving” Philanthropic Event
Hundreds of employee volunteers band together in support of Universal Studios Hollywood’s 15th annual “Day of Giving” community outreach event as the destination once again plays host to 300 homeless children from Operation School Bell.
The inspirational “Day of Giving” event is a yearly Universal Studios Hollywood tradition designed to connect employees with diverse community organizations, many of which are beneficiaries of the Discover A Star Foundation whose mission is to empower individuals and families to lead more productive and fulfilling lives.
As part of the event, children will receive a selection of new clothing and school supplies, followed by an afternoon of fun at the theme park that includes a visit to “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter,” a chance encounter with Minions to experience the popular “Despicable Me Minion Mayhem” ride and “Super Silly Fun Land” play zone, and a behind-the-scenes look at how movies are made on the world-famous Studio Tour.
The day-long event will also support several other non-profit organizations across Los Angeles, including Project Angel Food, Tree People, Habitat for Humanity and Shane’s Inspiration.
