The Walt Disney Company Donated a Million Dollars for Hurricane Michael Relief

A $1 million donation to the Florida Disaster Fund has been made by The Walt Disney Company to help “Florida’s Gulf Coast region and other areas impacted by Hurricane Michael.” In addition to the $1 million donation, they will also be matching dollar for dollar donations from “Disney employees to eligible relief and recovery organizations.”

CEO of The Walt Disney Company Robert A. Iger said, “All of us here at Disney have the families and communities impacted by this powerful storm in our hearts. Florida has been our home for almost 50 years, and our contribution will support our neighbors as they rebuild their communities in the wake of this powerful storm.”

In September, The Walt Disney Company donated $500,000 for Hurricane Florence relief, which impacted North Carolina earlier this year. That donation was part of a larger drive started by a group of ABC owned television stations, which in total raised over $1 million dollars.
