The American Red Cross Mid-Florida Region has received a $100,000 donation from Disney World Resort to support the organization’s disaster relief services. The contribution will be used to help the Red Cross respond immediately to the needs of kids and families in Central Florida impacted by local disasters.
“We are thankful to Disney for its support of the American Red Cross,” said Karen Hagan, president and CEO of the Red Cross, Mid-Florida chapter. “This generous donation allows the American Red Cross to continue its lifesaving work preparing for and responding to emergencies in Central Florida.”
In addition to financial contributions, Disney has supported the American Red Cross through the commitment of Disney VoluntEARS. So far this year, nearly 100 Walt Disney World Cast Members have successfully completed the “Ready when the Time Comes” training, which prepares volunteers to provide basic shelter set up and food services assistance to victims of disasters.
Last month, Disney also donated $250,000 to support Red Cross relief efforts in response to the Oklahoma tornados and severe storms that affected several states in the Midwest.
Wishing you Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust
