Impacting the Holiday Season

At the close of 2014, Warner Bros. employees came together for the Studio's annual Holiday Helping Hands Initiative benefiting Burbank Temporary Aid Center (BTAC), Meet Each Need with Dignity (MEND) and Toys for Tots (TFT).
Similar to previous years, Warner Bros. received an overwhelming number of requests to adopt a MEND family. Various Warner Bros. departments adopted a total of 22 families through MEND, which is a completely volunteer-run, Pacoima-based nonprofit organization that supports families living in poverty located in the East San Fernando Valley. Each department worked together to purchase and personally deliver items such as clothes, blankets, food, household essentials, toys and, in some cases, TVs.
And Warner Bros. employees did not stop there. By filling bins located around the lot, and with the help of the Warner Bros. Fire Department, the studio donated a total of three vans full of toys for Toys for Tots and six carts of non-perishable food items for the Burbank Temporary Aid Center. The efforts pulled together to support TFT and BTAC provided extra help to families and children during the holidays.
