A highlight of today’s celebration was a special visit by Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse to welcome and thank the volunteers at a ceremony in front of the theme park’s Storyteller Statue, together with leadership from the Shanghai Volunteer Foundation and Shanghai Disney Resort.
“We are excited to welcome these outstanding volunteers to Shanghai Disneyland and help appreciate and recognize their contributions to our community,” said Philippe Gas, general manager of Shanghai Disney Resort. “It is one of Disney’s core values to promote community volunteerism wherever we operate, including here in Shanghai. Through the Shanghai Disney Resort Outstanding Volunteer Recognition Program, we look forward to working together with the Shanghai Volunteer Foundation to pursue our shared vision of promoting community volunteerism throughout the city.”
The Shanghai Disney Resort Outstanding Volunteer Recognition Program was introduced on International Volunteer Day (December 5) last year. The program is a special cooperation project between Shanghai Disney Resort and the Shanghai Volunteer Foundation to recognize 1000 outstanding community volunteers and their family members with a day of magic at Shanghai Disneyland.
