ORLANDO, Fla. - In an effort to help underserved and vulnerable communities during the coronavirus pandemic, Disney announced they will be donating one million reusable, cloth face masks to children and families across the country, including Florida.
According to Disney Parks Blog, the masks will be distributed by MedShare.
“Disney’s donations will make a tremendous impact in the communities we serve,” says Charles Redding, CEO and president of MedShare. “Their contribution of one million Disney cloth face masks will be provided to families in underserved communities and organizations working to limit the spread of COVID-19, while their monetary donation will be used to support the medical community’s ongoing efforts to provide lifesaving care to those who need it most.”
