Couple starts a GoFundMe to help raise money for laid off cast members

GoFundMe Disney

A Central Florida couple is making an effort to assist former Disney Cast Members recently affected by layoffs. Both Conner and Betsy Bourne started a GoFundMe to raise money for the Cast Member Pantry. The organization helps Disney Cast Members who need assistance due to the effects of the global pandemic.

The details of the GoFundMe are shown below:

As many of you know, tens of thousands of Cast Members at the Walt Disney World Resort have been laid off and many have been furloughed without pay since April. My wife and I felt called to practically help our friends, colleagues, and neighbors as we were impacted by the furloughs and know first-hand how much a helping hand means in this time of isolation. We can do more and be more when we are connected as a community.

We decided that this calling could be realized by raising money to give to the Cast Member Pantry.

The Cast Member Pantry has served thousands of Disney Cast & families with healthy and plentiful meal packs. However, with the announcement of the layoffs, the demand for their services have exponentially increased.

The fundraiser has raised more than $7,700 so far.

To receive groceries, Disney World workers should email fill out the form sent in the automatic reply.
