It was Christmas in Spring for hundreds of families this past Saturday at the M.E.N.D. Facility in Pacoima where, once again, they hosted Universal Studios’ Christmas in Spring charity event. Christmas in Spring was created by Universal Studios in order to help out impoverished families living in Southern California. The event, now in its 27th year, has helped over 16,000 people since its inception. This year, the event allowed these families to enjoy an afternoon of custom-prepared food and interactive festivities, from carnival games and face painters to a live DJ. The best part about Christmas in Spring, aside from those it helps of course, is that it is manned by volunteer Universal Studios employees!
