Paramount Fights HIV/AIDS LogoParamount’s commitment to the fight against HIV/AIDS is long-standing and deep. The company has been a Grand Sponsor of AIDS Walk Los Angeles since its inception in 1985, raising tens of thousands of dollars for AIDS Project Los Angeles, the main beneficiary organization. HIV/AIDS projects are also a major focus of the Paramount Volunteer Crew. In 2012, employees helped renovate the shared resident kitchen at Project New Hope, a transitional housing facility for those with HIV/AIDS and other disabling diseases. Volunteers worked at Hollywood’s Project Angel Food’s kitchen and AIDS Project Los Angeles’ food pantry. Paramount also hosts a series of awareness events on the studio lot, including a “Facing AIDS” photo project for World AIDS Day, an information campaign for National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day and a VIVA GLAM lipstick fundraiser for National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day in partnership with the MAC AIDS Fund. In 2011 and 2012, a 15-foot red awareness ribbon was attached to the famous Paramount Pictures water tower — a symbol of the company’s support that was visible across the city.

“Project Angel Food is such a great organization, and it was inspiring to see how much care goes into the food preparation. Delivering the finished meals was an even greater joy.”
