I have contacts backing up to V-Cloud, but want to also backup to google Drive.  Already have google drive loaded and logged-in.  Where do I go from here?

Have you tried exporting your Contacts to a .vcf file and saving on your local Google Drive?

Having your contacts backed up is important, Frustrated5492.  Your device will only backup to one backup service at a time. To backup your contacts to your Google account, you can try exporting them from Verizon Cloud and then importing them to Google Contacts.  If you are signed in with both accounts on your device, it will duplicate your contacts.  Here are the steps to export as a CSV from Verizon Cloud: https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/knowledge-base-123994/.  Here are the steps that you can take to import the contacts to your Google Contacts: https://support.google.com/contacts/answer/1069522?hl=en.

@Frustrated5492 We know the importance of having your contacts backed up. We're here to assist. Please click the link provided for instructions, and let us know if this helps. Keep in mind because this is a third party back up option so we're sharing information from a third party website but this should be helpful.  https://www.techrepublic.com/article/pro-tip-migrate-all-of-your-android-contacts-to-google/
