Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Northridge Hospital Foundation and Northridge Hospital Medical Center will not be able to host the 20th Annual “Helping Hands” Holiday Jam.

HOWEVER… the tradition must continue!

This year, the Foundation and the Hospital, in partnership with many community partners and donors, will be delivering over 350 gift bags to students at five local elementary schools. Each child will receive a bag full of Christmas toys to take home. 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. For many of these children, this may be their only Christmas.

WHAT:                      “Helping Hands Holiday Jam” on the road!

WHEN:                        Week of December 7-11, 2020

DESTINATION:        Leaving from the North Pole, arriving to the following destinations:


Blythe Elementary
Cantara Elementary
Michelle Obama Elementary
Panorama City Elementary
Parthenia Elementary
