On November 9th, Universal held their annual "Day of Giving" event in front of Universal Studios Hollywood. Universal teamed up with Operation School Bell to give over 300 homeless school children shoes, backpacks, toys and more. If you haven't heard of Operation School Bell, they provide more than 6,700 underserved elementary-age school children in LA Unified School District (LAUSD) with new school clothes, enhancing their self-esteem and chance to succeed. In addition to ordering, preparing, and organizing the shoes, clothing, and other items, OSB fundraise to purchase these items. OSB member volunteers contribute more than 25,000 service hours annually to make all this happen! They work one-on-one with the children, making sure that the clothing fits well and that each child feels valued and special.
