In honor of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, the generous support of the Million Dollar Dazzle program has awarded $60,000 to a local nonprofit.
Disney Parks Blog announced that the Community Action Partnership of Orange County’s Family Resource Centers had been surprised with a check for $60,000. This organization helps youth with schooling as well as provides lunches to senior citizens.
Disney VoluntEARS were on hand helping pack boxes for the local food bank as the announcement was made. Disney Ambassador Allie Kawamoto, as well as the Million Dollar Dazzle team, arrived with a check in hand for the organization, surprising everyone.
Buddy Ray, executive director of CAPOC, said in a statement, “we have a really difficult time fundraising for our Family Resource Centers. It’s easier to raise funds for the food bank because everyone understands what that is. This makes a world of difference for our entire nonprofit. Families are getting quality services that make a difference in their lives.”
