Hi Team,

COVID-19 has had an unprecedented effect in people’s lives across the world. We face the additional challenge of impact to our society in poverty stricken environments during lockdown.

Our company wants to ensure we reach the most vulnerable in our society with immediate daily food support. We have partnered with the NACCW (National Association of Child Care Workers) to respond in driving fund contribution to provide food deliveries within impacted areas of Gauteng, Limpopo and KZN provinces.

The NACCW provides social services to some of our country’s most vulnerable children and families in child headed and Granny headed households.

Our call to action to you is individual voluntary fund contributions to our unique fund code created by NACCW.

Use the fund code ‘ViacomCBS FOOD4COVID’ as your EFT reference.

The NACCW values any range of contribution that can go towards ensuring these young families have daily meals on their tables.

Mechanism for tracking contributions: 
The NACCW bank account is tracked daily for contributions that reference ViacomCBS FOOD4COVID.ViacomCBS Employee Matching Gifts Program
We commit to matching all funds contributed by you collectively.

Modalities for distribution of food
The NACCW is mindful to safety issues in the distribution of food when many are hungry. Distribution of food is as follows:
•   Discreet drop-offs at family homes by child and youth care workers
•   E-vouchers dissemination where families are able to purchase (food) at a local store.

For the next phase we will also take this ViacomCBS FOOD4COVID-19 fund contribution call to our partners and industry stakeholders.

We will additionally be supporting the NACCW in developing a PSA to air across our channels and digital platforms.

In these challenging times, giving back and supporting our communities who need it the most is more important than ever. Let’s all unite, play our part and continue to create meaningful difference. Alonetogether. Sisonke.

Thank you and stay safe.

Monde and Craig
