As a apart of it’s 28th Annual Christmas in the Spring community event hundreds of Universal Studios Hollywood team members volunteers are coming together in partnership with Meet Each Need with Dignity or ‘MEND’ for short. The organization and Universal Studios has touched over 18,000 families living in poverty and have brought them the holiday cheer when their needs are often overlooked during this time of year.
Families who are supported by MEND can enjoy food, interactive fun, festivities, from carnival games, face painters, and a live DJ! (Note: Christmas in the Spring is not a public event and is only for families supported for the MEND Organization). Universal Studios and MEND have brought many smiles to families over the years of them holding this great event and continue to do so each and every year.
Special appearances from Santa Claus, the mischievous minions, and more beloved Universal characters will happen for families to take pictures with and interact with. These characters are sure to bring smiles to anyone’s face and want to uplift the spirits of the low income households with some fun and dancing while during the event.
Universal Studios Hollywood continues to partner with MEND each year as well as the ‘Discover a Star’ Foundation which provides grants to deserving organizations whose initiatives help individuals and families to achieve more productive and fulfilling lives. MEND has opened up it’s doors for 48 years to the most vulnerable members of the community and have provided an average of 30,000 client encounters each month. The organization is an anchor institution with the largest food bank in the valley, medical, dental and vision clinics, clothing, homeless care services, as well as support and care through case management services.
