Viacom NY Expands Its Holiday Collections

For many years now, Viacom has been participating twice yearly with Second Chance Toys to help collect and clean toys for children in need. During the holidays, we have been able to count on the good work of the controllers group, that consistently collects large numbers of beautiful and good-as-new plastic toys for us year after year. "It is always fun and rewarding to see our efforts going to make children happy," said Wanda Farag, who spearheaded the controllers' collection. "We look forward to this every year and save up our toys in anticipation," she added.

With sustainability a priority at Viacom, Anthony Agate, Senior Director, Event Operations & Food Services, arranged for his group to participate as well. He asked everyone to bring a gently used plastic toy to the holiday party celebrated by various teams. They not only collected a good number of toys, but Anthony also arranged for delivery of all the toys collected by both groups at Viacom.

The children at Malcom X II Phase B low income housing apartments were the beneficiaries of the beautiful toys that brought lots of holiday cheer for them and their parents.

Thank you Viacom!
