Disney VoluntEARS Donate Books to Military Families
We’ve got a fantastic feel good story for your Presidents Day! Disney VoluntEARS have recently collaborated with Blue Star Families for an initiative called Blue Star Books. This special program encourages reading among military children.
These images are from a very special event for the US Coast Guard and the US Southern Command families on February 18th at the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station in Opa-Locka, FL.
Disney Publishing and Disney Cruise Line got in on the fun for the 20th “Blue Star Books.” This included a special reading of Ryan Higgins’ book ‘Norman Didn’t Do It” by First Lady Dr. Jill Biden. The book was released as part of the White House’s Joining Forces initiative to support military and Veteran families as well as caregivers and survivors!
Another noteworthy part of this incredible day was when Captain Minnie showed up to meet with the kids!
Disney Publishing has been supporting Blue Star Families through Blue Star Books since 2011. Over the last decade, more than 250,000 books have been donated to military families. In addition, Disney Cruise Line continues their long-standing relationship with the U.S. Coast Guard which provides ongoing support for Disney Cruise Line operations!
We love seeing these incredible images of families showing up for this incredible day and all the books that were available!
