Special Events

Family Fair:

Held in conjunction with NVCS’ annual Bike-a-Thon, this spring fair offers families in the community information on available resources and services. Partner organizations include Van Nuys Adult School, Friends of the Family and North Valley Occupational Center. Health screenings are provided by Providence Holy Cross in addition to games and activities for participating children. Over 200 individuals attend each year.

Thanksgiving Meal:

As an extension of the Outreach Programs, NVCS offers a Thanksgiving Meal prepared on-site and serving approximately 250 people each year. Held the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, a memorial service is held for the homeless, before the meal is served.

Toy Give-Away:

Generous donations from donors such as Toys for Tots allows NVCS to hold an annual Toy Give-Away during the Christmas Holidays. Each child receives at least one toy, and often, a new winter outfit.

Christmas Boutique:

Offered annually near Christmas time, 350 children choose and wrap gifts for their parents. Excited parents are happy to receive the family photos taken during this event.
