We love hearing about all of the great things that Disney and Disney VoluntEARS do to help out various charities and communities. Disney Parks Blog shared that on Thursday, March 14th there were over 150 Disney VoluntEARS who participated in the City of Hope’s ToyFest. There were a variety of ways that they participated including singing in the choir, hosting carnival games, animating Disney characters and interacting with children and families to help them create unforgettable memories.
This was the fourth annual winter festival and was themed to Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story! ToyFest had a variety of different activities like animation classes to learn how to draw Disney characters, character meet and greets and a performance from Disney’s Glendale Cast Choir who sang a variety of different Disney hits.
It wasn’t just the Toy Story characters that were in attendance, there were also Star Wars characters and others there, too! There were even Storm Troopers patrolling the area!
Disney has a strong legacy of supporting hospitals like City of Hope, and this event was created to bring a distinctly Disney experience to children battling life-threatening medical conditions. ToyFest is just another example of the Disney Team of Heroes’ commitment to reinventing the patient and family experiences at children’s hospitals across the globe.
We love to see this kind of magic created for these kids and families in need!
