For a lot of kids buying school supplies is fun, but it is not so much fun for the families that can’t afford to get what they need let alone what they want. Every year Disney VoluntEARS at the Walt Disney World Resort step up and help in a huge way! Thanks to the Back to School Supply Drive, needy students will get over $866,000 worth of school supplies, that includes over 60,000 backpacks.
The supplies will distributed by a local organization called A Gift For Teaching. They are a nonprofit organization that gives free school supplies to local area students that are in need.
Amazing Disney VoluntEARS Cast Members not only donated supplies themselves but they also spent many hours sorting pens, crayons, notebooks and other school items. They also answered phones during a telethon that was hosted by WKMG Local 6 to help raise more money for the nonprofit’s supply efforts.
