The Northridge Hospital Foundation and Dignity Health Northridge Hospital will host their 18th Annual “Helping Hands Holiday Jam” for over 300 San Fernando Valley underserved children today, Dec. 6, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The event takes place at the Northridge Hospital Medical Park Plaza Parking Back Lot, located at 18300 Roscoe Boulevard at the corner of Reseda Boulevard and Cantara Street.
Dozens of volunteers, including students from California State University, Northridge, will be on hand to help children enjoy carnival games, arts and crafts, food, and a visit and photo with Santa as well as a bag full of gifts to take home.
For the past 17 years the Holiday Jam has been a seasonal highlight for thousands of children from local area elementary schools between the ages of 7-10. These children are part of the “Title1/No Child Left Behind” program that provides financial assistance to local agencies for the education of children of low-income families.
