Each year during the holiday season, Paramount partners with a local non-profit organization for a holiday giving drive. In 2012, the studio partnered with Aviva Children & Family Services, whose mission is to provide a comprehensive range of therapeutic and educational programs to help at-risk, emotionally distressed, abused, and neglected youth – as well as their families – function more effectively as individuals and within the family and community. Employees were able to read wish lists and “adopt” a child or family in need.
Paramount employees sprung into action - “adopting” 106 deserving children and families, with gifts totaling more than an estimated $15,000. These items – from bikes to dolls to sheets and dishware – helped to make holiday dreams come true for these deserving children and families.
