The face masks will be available in four styles and two different sizes featuring Disney characters.
“Proceeds will benefit the GHEF, which includes facilities in Marne-la-Vallée, Meaux, Coulommiers, and Jourre.”
“This donation is part of the company’s ongoing initiatives that launched during the temporary closure, including donations of food, protective equipment, and other medical supplies to those in need.”
“Hospitals and nursing homes in the Île-de-France region were able to benefit from donations of protective equipment, such as rain ponchos, distributed to healthcare professionals.”
“To ease the daily life of children hospitalized during confinement, the Disney VoluntEARS also created small educational tutorials from their homes, which were transmitted to patients via partner hospitals. These videos were accompanied by supply kits for practicing the tutorials.”
