Disneyland Donates $600,000 to Chrysalis to Support Job Training in Anaheim
Disneyland knows how important and integral Anaheims local economy and workforce is to the success of the resort. That is why Josh D’Amaro, President of Disneyland Resort announced this week that the company would be making a $600,000 donation to Chrysalis. This California nonprofit has proven results in lifting individuals out of poverty by helping them find steady jobs. This new partnership is part of Disney’s continued commitment to workforce development in Anaheim.
Disney’s donation to Chrysalis will allow the organization to extend its services to Orange County through the opening of a new facility in Anaheim. In addition, Disneyland will provide Chrysalis with Disney VoluntEARS support and expertise to help Anaheim residents build their skills and increase employability.
As part of this new collaboration, Disney VoluntEARS have launched a clothing drive to collect business casual clothing from Disneyland cast members. They also helped in the packaging of hygiene kits.
Josh D’Amaro had this to say of the collaboration, “This marks our increasing commitment to the city of Anaheim and the future of its economy and workforce.” For more information about Disneyland’s relationship with Chrysalis check out this video:
To date, Chrysalis has assisted more than 60,000 Californians to overcome obstacles to employment!
