BURBANK, Calif., October 14, 2016The Walt Disney Company has dedicated $1 million to help the people and communities impacted by Hurricane Matthew’s devastation. The funds will support our neighbors in Florida, as well as families across the storm’s path — from Georgia and the Carolinas to the Bahamas and the Caribbean.

Iger, chairman and chief executive officer, The Walt Disney Company. “We hope that Disney’s support will aid ongoing relief efforts as people begin to recover and rebuild.”
