Disney VoluntEars help deliver donation of 40,000 Disney books in Central Florida

Teachers-Mickey

The second annual First Book Family Festival took place recently in Central Florida and Walt Disney World contributed more than 40,000 Disney Worldwide Publishing books into the hands of Central Florida educators, children and families.

During a no-cost shopping experience, educators were able to select up to 50 books and children and families were able to select up to five books per child. The books, donated by Disney Worldwide Publishing, represented both classic and new Disney tales that appeal to readers of a variety of ages.

Teachers-VoluntEARMore than 100 Disney VoluntEARS spent hours sorting and organizing the thousands of books by age and genre. They also assisted event attendees in finding perfect-fit books for their needs, helping to provide the resources needed for in-home experiences where families can explore their imaginations together and cultivate a lifelong love of imaginative storytelling.

This unique experience was made possible through Disney’s longstanding partnership with First Book, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing new books to educators and organizations serving children from low-income families.
