Viacommunity Day 2014: Love Recycled

It was an exciting day in New York City for Viacommunity Day 2014! Over 100 Viacom associates volunteered to spend the morning cleaning, tagging and bagging over 1,000 gently used plastic toy donations that were collected at NYC Kidville locations in partnership with Second Chance toys.  

The energy could be felt from everyone as the Viacom team enjoyed the music playing from the DJ booth and danced from table to table making sure that not one toy was overlooked.
