"Day of Giving" 2017 Volunteer Event Kicks-Off at Universal Studios Hollywood park

Universal Studios Hollywood celebrated the start of their annual "Day of Giving" community service event today, right outside the front gates of the park. Now in its thirteenth year, the philanthropic event supports six different Los Angeles based non-profits and almost 300 local homeless kids in the community.

Universal Studios Hollywood served as one of the six different sites that will help underserved community members this season, part of the overall Season of Giving program. Operation School Bell was hosted at today's event, which helps local Los Angeles Unified School District children get the school supplies they need

Universal Employees were on hand during the event to volunteer their time and help distribute the supplies

 Books, shoes, backpacks, jackets, and more were given out to appreciative school kids.
