Sony/ATV Music Publishing employees are working just as hard to benefit their communities as they do to benefit their songwriters.

Over the past two weeks, 70 Sony/ATV Music Publishing employees volunteered nearly 300 service hours for six volunteer projects as part of Sony/ATV’s annual Community Outreach Weeks.

They worked with the Nashville Humane Association, which is committed to finding responsible homes, controlling pet overpopulation and promoting the humane treatment of animals. Sony/ATV staffers spent time playing with animals and bathing puppies. A few puppies were even adopted by some of the Sony/ATV volunteers.

Not only does it strengthen our team, but it also connects us to each other and our community. I’m proud of our employees and their involvement and dedication to these causes.”
