Disney Donating $2 Million to the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund
Hurricane Sandy was devastating for the East Coast, especially in New York and New Jersey. As a resident of New Jersey, I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of offers of help, aid and money being donated to the people most in need right now. Disney never disappoints in their efforts to help others and they have announced today a $2 million commitment to the Hurricane Sandy Relief and Rebuilding Fund.
Chairman and CEO Robert Iger made the announcement and stated “It’s hard to fathom the utter devastation from this storm. Thousands of people in the hurricane’s path lost everything and face the daunting challenge of putting their lives and communities back together. We hope this helps provide immediate aid needed to get through this disaster and begin the road to recovery.”
Disney has declared $1 million of the donation to go to the American Red Cross for immediate assistance and the remaining $1 million to go to various funds to help in the efforts. Disney will also be running public service announcements on ABC, abc.com, abcnews.com, Radio Disney and ESPN’s family of networks encouraging viewers to support the Red Cross’s relief efforts.
Disney is a proud sponsor of the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program amongst other things.
