United Way Campaign Gets Help from Cast Members

DAPs Magic Disney News – PRESS RELEASE 

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – As the largest corporate contributor to Heart of Florida United Way (HFUW), Walt Disney World Resort often gets attention for its generous charitable giving–our Cast Members donate nearly $3 million annually to the organization and we serve as the host and sponsor of the annual Chef’s Gala event.

What is lesser known but just as important is that Walt Disney World Resort also annually makes a valuable annual in-kind contribution to HFUW by loaning Cast Members to assist the agency for three months with its annual fundraising campaign.

This year Disney has selected Sean McNally, Retail Guest Services Manager at ESPN Wide World of Sports and Heather Switzer, Labor Operations, to join a team of loaned executives from various local companies that in turn help more than 450 local businesses implement their United Way workplace campaigns.

“I am very excited to represent Disney and to have the opportunity to work with Heart of Florida United Way to help make a difference for the Central Florida community,” said  McNally. “Having this opportunity to work with fellow leaders from around Central Florida will make me a more aware and well-rounded leader for my organization.”

Since 1992, Disney has loaned a total of 81 Cast Members to serve in this capacity at HFUW. Walt Disney World begins its annual Heart of Florida United Way campaign on October 1.
