On Sunday, March 23, CBS presented A Day of Hope, a benefit for programs for children and families in crisis.

The successful event on New York St. at CBS Radford Studios in Studio City, featuring a live musical performance by Josh Groban, raised nearly $200,000 to support Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles's programs for children and famiilies.

A Day of Hope was a day of family fun – and a day of giving back, combining food trucks and entertainment with meaningful and fun community service activities.  Event attendees packed backpacks for Tools for School, participated in a book drive, and made stuffed animals for children in shelters.  All proceeds benefited the 100,000 men, women, and children in crisis who turn to JFS for help each year.
