Disney Parks Donates Much Needed Medical Supplies to Healthcare Workers on the Frontlines
Hospitals around the country are requesting additional protective equipment and medical related supplies and Disney Parks is helping in any way they can. Disney Parks has donated 150,000 rain ponchos to MedShare, a humanitarian aid organization, for distribution to hospitals in need. Nurses across the country realized that rain ponchos can be a way to protect their clothing and prolong the use of PPE, and what better place than Disney to assist!
“The COVID-19 pandemic is unlike anything we’ve seen before,” said Charles Redding, MedShare CEO and President. “We have to find ways to pool our resources and work together to help the healthcare workers who are doing their very best to treat patients and contain COVID-19. We appreciate Disney partnering with us to support hospitals and healthcare workers on the frontlines.”
Disney Parks also recently donated more than 100,000 N95 masks to the states of New York, California and Florida.
Since March, Disney Parks have provided almost $3 Million in in-kind donations to help communities around the world.
