Celebrating the Magic of Families Volunteering Together
Disney Parks and Points of Light are celebrating family volunteerism by rewarding nonprofits and schools in the United States with Disney parks tickets for hosting – or participating in – family volunteering activities. When you give, we give! Eligible organizations create and register projects, track family volunteers, and complete approved projects to receive complimentary park tickets from Disney.
Celebrate Service in your Community
National Volunteer Week is an opportunity to shine a light on the people and causes that inspire us to serve. Nominate a Daily Point of Light by March 2 and honor an exceptional volunteer in your community, celebrating the power of the individual to spark change and improve the world.
