Community Engagement

We believe being a good corporate citizen is the right thing to do, for our consumers and guests, our employees, and our businesses. It makes our company a desirable place to work, reinforces the attractiveness of our brands and entertainment, and strengthens our bonds with families, as well as our consumers, neighbors and business associates.

We continue our company’s legacy of giving as we seek to do our part in improving and enriching the lives of kids and families as well as contributing our time, resources, and energies in communities around the world with a focus on:

  • Compassion: Providing happiness, hope and cheer to those who need it the most thereby building stronger communities
  • Conservation: Connecting kids to nature and helping them develop lifelong conservation values
  • Creativity: Harnessing the power of creativity and imagination to improve the lives of kids, families and the communities they live in
