As a mother, the importance of raising a happy and healthy child is near and dear to me. That’s why I currently serve on the board of directors for MOMS Orange County. MOMS OC provides critical services that assist mothers and their families in having healthy babies by providing health coordination, education and access to community services.
Whether my support is through volunteering or the Disneyland Resort Corporate Citizenship efforts, my commitment to MOMS OC allows me to better understand the needs of the organization to make a greater impact. This season, cast members had the opportunity to bring their families and children to trick or treat in Disney California Adventure Park for an event called “Little Monsters.” Nearly 2,000 little monsters joined in the festivities and cast members brought baby items, such as diapers, clothes and toiletries, to donate to MOMS OC. Over the last 10 years, cast members have donated items valued at more than $46,000!
Through the years, I have seen MOMS OC evolve and recognize the changing needs of the local community, providing children and families with empowerment, knowledge and support to raise healthy babies. To learn more about MOMS OC, visit momsorangecounty.org.
