University Student Affairs - California

Santa’s Workshop

Santa’s Workshop 2017

About the Event

The University is hosting our 27th Annual Santa’s Workshop in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services on Saturday, December 2, 2017. 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.





Financial Contribution

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

Our goal is to raise $5,000 for 2017! 

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

No amount is too small.




Buy a Child a Gift

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

2) VIsit one of our tabling events:
Wednesday, Nov. 8th – HEC Esplanade
Thursday, Nov. 9th – HPC Esplanade
Monday, Nov. 13th – HSC Esplanade

Give a gift to a child.



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

Fundraising Progress!






Children that still need a sponsor:



Thank you to our volunteers!



























This event is not a WesternU fundraising activity. Any monetary contributions or donated presents will directly benefit the children within the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) system. In the event that a child does not attend, your generous gift donation will still benefit a child in need through a local charity.
