Santa’s Workshop

Santa’s Workshop 2016

 About The Event 


The University is hosting our 28th Annual Santa’s Workshop in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services on Saturday, December 3, 2016. Over 200 foster children and their families are invited for a traditional holiday meal, activities, entertainment and presents from Santa and Mrs. Claus. We need the community and the WesternU family’s help to make this event special in the lives of our little guests.

How You Can Help: 

Financial Contribution

Buy A Child a Gift  


Every dollar given will go towards helping provide gifts, food, entertainment, and decorations for the event.  

Our goal is to raise $5,000 for 2016!

Stop by University Student Affairs or make a gift online today!

No amount is too small.

You can sponsor a child and buy them a gift! The children range in age from a month old to 12 years old, and our office will provide you with a gift idea. To sign up to be a sponsor you can:

1) Stop by University Student Affairs
 (SSC Room 101) 
2) Sign up at one of our tabling events:
November 8th – HEC
November 9th – HPC
November 14th – HSC

Our office is looking for students who would like to help make this event possible. Employees are welcome to sign up but priority is give to students.

We need individual volunteers to help decorate, serve food, and be on the check-in/greeter team, and we need teams of five to manage the arts and crafts tables.
