The Walt Disney Company Donates Money to Hurricane Michael Victims
The Walt Disney Company announced yesterday that they were donating $1 million to aid in recovery and response efforts to those affected by Hurricane Michael across Florida’s Gulf region. The contribution will go towards the Florida Disaster Fund.
“The families and communities impacted by this devastating hurricane need our help as they begin to rebuild,” chairman and CEO Bob Iger said in a statement. “Through today’s $1 million contributions, and other relief efforts in the weeks and months ahead, we will stand with our Gulf Coast neighbors as they recover from this tragic storm.”
That generous donation isn’t all Disney is doing to support the hurricane victims, through the Disney Employee Matching Gifts: A Program of The Walt Disney Company Foundation, any contributions towards relief efforts made by Disney employees will be matched by the company, dollar for dollar.
Disney works on an ongoing basis with numerous nonprofit organizations on emergency preparedness efforts, including sharing lifesaving information with families before and during emergencies, having supplies prepositioned and at-the-ready to respond to natural disasters, and providing resources to activate large-scale responses in the event of a disaster.
