While Disneyland Paris prepares to reopen on July 15, cast members from the Disney VoluntEARS program recently shared the magic of the destination with residents of the Val d’Europe Agglomeration nearby community by planting hundreds of flowers in the flowerbeds at Château de Coupvray park and distributing 10,000 plants to residents for personal gardening.
Originally intended for planting this spring across the resort, these flowers continued to grow during the resort’s temporary closure causing an excess for the resort.
This donation helps to reduces waste and extends the company’s solidarity with the cities of Val d’Europe – the resort’s key partners since its creation – while raising awareness among younger generations about environmental preservation and what they can do to help in their communities.
Several planting activities have been held over the past few weeks, including in Coupvray for International Environment Day on June 5, at the Serris social grocery store called l’Oasis, and in front of Jossigny hospital (Groupe Hospitalier Est Francilien – Marne-la-Vallée site) where Disney VoluntEARS planted a THANK YOU in flowers for healthcare staff on June 24.
Throughout this period of exceptional closure, Disneyland Paris has also supported neighboring healthcare institutions and associations by donating more than 100 tons of food, protective equipment and other medical supplies valued at more than 1.5 million euros.
