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.
Staffers teamed with United Way’s Stuff The Bus Days of Action to help collect and distribute school supplies to at-risk children in the Nashville area.
They also worked with The Next Door, which provides services for women and families impacted by addiction, mental illness, trauma or incarceration. Sony/ATV staffers organized closets, made encouraging cards, and served lunch to women participating in the program.
For Nashville’s Zoo at Grassmere, staffers worked with the horticulture staff to pull weeds and pick vegetables. The vegetables were later sorted and given to the animals to eat.
The Nashville Public Library recently launched the Studio NPL learning lab, which offers technology-driven learning environment for teens ages 12-18. Sony/ATV Staffers helped teens with photography, live instruments and music production.
Staffers worked with Cumberland River Compact, which aims to enhance the health of the Cumberland River and its tributaries. Staffers canoed down the Cumberland, picking up trash and helping to beautify the river.
Sony/ATV’s Vice President of Global Human Resources Angel Stewart commented “Volunteering is one of our team building efforts and one of the most highly-rated activities amongst our staff. 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.”
