Disney Parks and the nonprofit organization Points of Light are set to host “Family Volunteer Day” activities on Saturday, Nov. 23 at Disney Springs.
The event will celebrate the power of volunteering and encourage families to take an interest in their communities in Central Florida or back home.
The Family Volunteer Day will start at 10:30 a.m. with a ceremony hosted by Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products. Guests will include the Aguirre family of McAllen, Texas, who were recently named the first-ever Disney and Points of Light Volunteer Family of the Year after a nationwide search on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
After the ceremony, guests at Disney Springs can take part in hands-on family-service activities from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the Marketplace. Guests who participate will receive discounts or special offers at select Disney Springs retail and dining locations for that day.
Disney and Points of Light have inspired more than 3 million hours of service through the Disney Family Volunteering Reward Program, which rewards eligible U.S. nonprofits and schools with Disney park tickets for hosting family-friendly volunteer efforts.
