Cast Members from the Disneyland Resort and volunteers from Inside the Outdoors recently took part in an Orange County event that helped restore hiking trails, refurbished propagation areas, made seed balls, and created science kits. At the end of the event, Disney revealed that, with the help of families across America, more than 2 million hours of volunteer service had been logged through the Disney Family Volunteering Reward Program.
The program, which began in January 2018, encouraged schools and nonprofits by rewarding their volunteer efforts. The effort, which was created in collaboration with Points of Light, has seen more than 86,000 families and 7,000 organizations participate, including 1,000 that had never hosted family volunteer projects. In total, 10,000 family-friendly projects have been completed since the program began.
