2020 was a challenging year, but Disney Parks worked hard to support its communities. Here are some of the ways the company made a difference:
Disney donated over 880 tons of food around the world – from pizza in Paris to sweet roles in Hawaii.
Disney shared non-medical face coverings with character designs as part of a program that donated $1 million to support the medical community. Disney Parks also donated 250,000 rain ponchos to help hospitals and medical personnel prolong the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) early during the pandemic when supplies were limited.
Disney stores in parks, online, and around the country collected 90,000 toys for the Toys for Tots program. At Disney World and the Disney Cruise Line, chefs prepared hundreds of Thanksgiving meals. In Paris, Disney Cast Members made 50,000 Christmas ornaments for patients at hospitals.
Disney celebrated their 40th year of cooperation with Make-A-Wish and continued to grant wishes, from arranging for Princess Belle to visit a little girl to allowing a little boy to join the Super Bowl parade down Main Street USA.
