 Major Objectives

We use what's uniquely Disney -- our theme parks and entertainment offerings -- to help brighten the lives of children and families and make their wishes come true during difficult times or when it's needed most. We do this through significant national and international relationships with organizations such as Make-A-Wish, Starlight Starbright, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, FirstBook, Toys for Tots, etc.

We also strive to make a difference in the areas where we have business operations, and where our employees live and work through an extensive employee voluntEAR program and community relations presence.
