Universal Studios Hollywood Welcomes Nearly 300 Homeless School Children from Operation School Bell as Part of its Inspirational 16th Annual “Day of Giving”
Universal Studios Hollywood, joined by employee volunteers, celebrated its 16th annual “Day of Giving” philanthropy outreach event by hosting nearly 300 homeless children from Operation School Bell with a day of fun at the theme park
Highlights of the event will include providing the children with an assortment of new clothing and school supplies, from tennis shoes, uniforms and jackets to backpacks and books. The morning will culminate with an adventurous day at the theme park where the children will have a chance to enjoy such rides as the new “The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash!,” journey through “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” and embark on a behind-the-scenes look at how movies are made on the world-famous Studio Tour.
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 company’s in-house philanthropic organization, Discover A Star Foundation whose mission is to empower individuals and families to lead more productive and fulfilling lives. The day-long event will also support several other non-profit organizations across Los Angeles, including Covenant House, MEND Foodbank, The Foster Children’s Resource Center and Project Angel Food.
