2010 Opportuntiy with HandsOn Network and Disney Parks

In 2010, HandsOn Network has set our sites on celebrating the spirit and power of volunteerism. We are partnering with Disney Parks to connect families to volunteer activities that are friendly to the unique dynamics of youth activism.


We want to share this chance to thank your existing volunteers, inspire new volunteers to serve and celebrate that service in a big way. Through the Give A Day. Get A Disney Day. program, we’re inspiring one million more people to volunteer a day of service, and say “thanks” by giving them a one-day admission to a Disney park for free.


Thousands of organizations – including schools, healthcare organizations, animal shelters, parks & recreation facilities and more - will participate in this program by making their existing volunteer activities eligible for the program.


Just a few of the kinds of projects available to family volunteers include: making kudzu wreaths for senior centers or schools to address environmental hazards in a fun way; crafting doggie bandanas to help animal shelters adopt out more homeless pets; conducting canned food drives to fill food bank pantries; and filling backpacks with nutritious snacks for kids living in homeless shelters. These are just a handful of the thousands of creative volunteer activities that will be available through beginning Jan. 1.


To make your volunteer events part of Give A Day. Get A Disney Day. sign up today with HandsOn Network at


For frequently asked questions about the program, go to If you still have questions, submit a request to the customer support team at and we will contact you.


There’s never been a better time than now, when there are so many needs in our communities, for young people and families to get involved in service. We look forward to celebrating this time with you!
