We are extremely saddened by all of the destruction and devastation that was caused by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas. The Walt Disney Company has announced that in light of these events, the company will donate more than $1 million to help with the relief and recovery efforts in The Bahamas. This commitment is led by Disney Cruise Line.
Per Disney Parks Blog, “This commitment includes a $1 million donation to non-profit relief agencies who will be undertaking recovery and rebuilding efforts, as well as the provision of supplies – including food staples and basic construction materials – to those in impacted areas.”
Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger shared, “The Walt Disney Company stands with the people of The Bahamas affected by Hurricane Dorian.” He went on to say, “We hope our $1 million donation will provide much-needed relief and help our neighbors, colleagues, and all those impacted by this devastating storm begin the long process of recovery as they work to put their lives and communities back together.”
“The Bahamas is such a special place to us and our guests, and we have watched the devastation created by Hurricane Dorian with concern and heartache,” Jeff Vahle, president of Disney Cruise Line, said. “We stand with the Bahamian people, and especially those in Abaco and Grand Bahama, as they recover from the worst storm to ever make landfall in The Bahamas. As the needs in these communities are assessed, we are prepared to aid the relief and recovery efforts through funding, the provision of supplies and by providing support to our Bahamian Crew Members.”
Our hearts and thoughts go out to those who have been impacted by Hurricane Dorian. We are grateful to companies like Disney who are willing and able to contribute to the recovery during these unfortunate situations.
