As a reward for academic performance, the kids from our family shelter were treated to a day at Universal Studios. The day started with students receiving brand new backpacks, shoes, clothes, hygiene products, jackets, and story books all thanks to Operation School Bells. The students received VIP treatment throughout the whole day at the park.
The kids were fearless as they conquered every ride in the park, including the Harry Potter rollercoaster five times in a row. Every ride operator consistently told them that they were a respectful and well-organized group of students. It was a day they will never forget.
Thank you to NBC Universal, LAUSD, and Operation School Bells for providing our kids with such a wonderful experience.
