Our ViacomCBS Veterans Network puts great time and effort into discerning how best to serve our military and veteran community. We are proud to stand side by side with those businesses and organizations that we recognize as tireless champions of our veteran and military community. We will continue to tirelessly ensure that the spotlight shines on those in the military and veteran community who need it most.
Last month, ViacomCBS Veterans Network members supported the Homes 4 Families’ first Virtual Veteran Art Show and Auction. Proceeds supported building 56 homes for the veteran community.
The ViacomCBS Veterans Network distributed nearly 3,500 hygiene products to the veteran community. The products were donated by Hyatt Pace El Segundo, Andaz West Hollywood Hotel, and members of the Vet Net team.
ViacomCBS Veterans Network members worked to raise over $500 last month to support Arts in the Armed Forces, a non-profit with a mission “to use the powerful shared experience of the arts to start conversations between military and civilian, service member and family member, the world of the arts and the world of practical action.”
This year, ViacomCBS Veterans Network in partnership with CBS New York received over 250 toys for tots, as well as $500 towards more toys. Overall, the retail value of the toys provided was nearly $4,000.
In partnership with the ViacomCBS Legal Department, the ViacomCBS Veterans Network provides critical pro-bono legal assistance to Veterans and their families. To date, the groups provided legal services to more than 350 Veterans and their families, representing more than 6,000 hours of free counsel, amounting to $2 million in fees saved and over $2.5 million in increased disability rating awards.
