Yesterday, the Walt Disney Company announced that they have committed $2.5 million to aid those affected by Hurricane Irma.

According to a statement from Disney, the funds will go to the American Red Cross, UNICEF, Save the Children and other nonprofits.

"As millions of people now face the daunting challenge of putting their lives and communities back together in the wake of these historic hurricanes, they need our help," said Robert A. Iger, chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company. "We’re donating $2.5 million to support relief and recovery efforts in response to Hurricane Irma. This is in addition to nearly $16 million we raised after Hurricane Harvey to help ensure storm victims have the support needed to recover and rebuild."

Disney will also match eligible employee donations dollar for dollar through the Disney Employee Matching Gifts program.
