CELEBRATION, Fla., (June 30, 2015) – Last month, more than 150 crew members from all four Disney Cruise Line ships participated in Disney VoluntEARS Month. This fleet-wide community service initiative involved 15 different volunteer projects in Central Florida, the Bahamas and Caribbean, resulting in over 450 community service hours.

In May, 10 organizations from five communities in Central Florida, the Bahamas and the Caribbean benefitted from Disney VoluntEARS Month. Crew member efforts impacted charitable causes focused on areas including education, health/wellness and animal care/rescue.

Disney VoluntEARS Month at Disney Cruise Line is a unique opportunity for shipboard crew members to come together to give back to communities in different ports of call. Each year, the cast and crew at Disney Cruise Line provide thousands of hours of community service – from raising funds for disaster relief to spreading Disney cheer in children’s hospitals around the world.
