I think I speak for everyone when I say, our hearts are broken for the thousands of Disney cast members being laid off. I’ve received lots of messages from our readers, asking how they can support laid off cast members. Below, are three ways to show your support.
- Cast Member Pantry
Cast Member Pantry makes it quick and easy to receive free food essentials once a month per Cast Member. You’ll receive a reusable grocery bag filled with foods that are easily put together to make meals for 4, with breakfast and snack options as well. We take pride in putting food we all enjoy in our bags because we believe our Cast deserve the very best, and a little comfort too.
Today I am donating to the thousands of Disney employees who have been laid off during these impossible times. If you can, please join me. They have provided us with untold joy. Let’s return the favor now🙏 https://t.co/jqEymuTTjO

Their Facebook page says, “Our kids shouldn’t have to suffer and be disappointed during this already difficult and different holiday season because of circumstances out of their parents’ control. Let’s help spread holiday cheer and create some magic for a cast that has previously created so much magic for millions of families throughout the years. If you can find it in your heart to purchase a small gift you will be helping keep the magic alive during this holiday season for one sweet child.”
