Disney’s “Helping Kids Shine” grant is ready to distribute $1.2 Million to 57 different children’s charities throughout Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Lake and Polk counties in Florida. During a week-long traveling celebration Disney plans on recognizing & rewarding the money to local non-profits and organizations that share Disney’s commitment to building better futures for local children.
“We continue to strengthen our focus on helping children thrive in Central Florida and look to invest in community partners who share our vision,” says Eugene Campbell, vice president of Community Relations and Minority Business Development for Walt Disney World Resort. “An exciting week is in store for some very deserving organizations that work tirelessly on behalf of our community’s youth.”
On top of the earmarked $1.2 Million donations Disney will also recognize & award 15 exceptional students in the five-county area as “Disney Dreamers & Doers Shining Stars” for their civic-minded efforts.
