Painting, gardening and career advice were among the activities carried out by some 800 Paramount Pictures employees during its parent company, Viacom’s annual Global Day of Community Service on April 19.
Paramount staff at the Melrose Ave. location participated in a variety of projects at local schools and an AIDS foodbank. Schools benefiting from the volunteer effort included Larchmont Charter Middle (repainting a mural); Santa Monica Blvd. (fitness workshops,
gardening); Frances Blend (petting zoo); Van Ness Avenue (gardening, crafts) and Wilshire Crest (gardening and irrigation).
Employees also raised funds and several men shaved their hair in support of St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which supports finding a cure for pediatric cancer.
