Disneyland Resort is helping to spread holiday cheer for the sixth year with a little holiday magic. Disneyland resorts “Operation Sparkle” spreads holiday cheer under the watchful eye of the Disneyland Resort parade maintenance team! How thoughtful of them!
The parade teams starts by collecting Toys for Tots-with over 8,000 toys collected this year- and decorating the homes of military families. According to the Mike Montero, the manager of Parade Maintenance at Disneyland Resort, “The team will go down to the Marine base and help families in need of holiday cheer. We decorate their homes and wrap Christmas presents and get their houses ready for the holidays.”
The Disney VoluntEARS will also help by throwing parties for patients at CHOC Children’s and the seniors at Walnut Manor Care Center in Anaheim! The patients receive a day full of fun that they won’t soon forget. The Disney VoluntEARS drop off gifts to residents with Mickey Mouse and his friends! They top off the event with a party with Mickey Mouse and a few of his closest friends, games, cookie decoration and one of Orange County’s longest Yule logs!!
The President of Disneyland Resort, Josh D’Amaro, summed up the Disney mission throughout the year, as well as, the holidays for Disneyland Resorts Operation Sparkle event. “Disneyland Resort Cast members are focused on making the holiday season as bright as possible, for as many people as possible. Giving back to the community has always been part of our culture, and I am proud of our cast members and the impact they make throughout Anaheim and Orange County”.
This mission prevails throughout the Disney community all year long. Which makes me proud to be a Disney Addict. I can see beyond the parks and can see the work they put into giving back to the community.
