Disney Cruise Line ‘VoluntEARS’ Help Port Communities
As Disney Cruise Line’s second cruise season in Europe sails on, crew members from the Disney Magic are not only busy with their duties, they’re also volunteering time at local children’s hospitals. Coming together with cast members from local Disney offices in Europe Disney Cruise Line’s special “VoluntEARS” deliver toys and smiles to over 1,000 children at hospitals and care facilities in 17 individual ports of call. Logging in a combined 800 hours of volunteer service to benefit these local communities, the volunteer crew is also accompanied by some beloved Disney characters.
“At Disney Cruise Line, we take great pride in giving back to the port communities we call home, whether in Port Canaveral, The Bahamas and Caribbean or half-way across the world in Europe. The opportunity for our cast and crew members to volunteer their time to worthwhile causes is an important part of the Disney Cruise Line culture.” -Christi Erwin Donnan, Manager of Public Affairs, Disney Cruise Line (Disney Parks Blog)
