The Walt Disney Company donated $2.5 million to support relief and recovery efforts in areas affected by Hurricane Irma.
The charitable contribution will be divided among the American Red Cross, UNICEF, and Save the Children in addition to other non-profits.
Eligible Disney employee donations will also be matched dollar for dollar by the Disney Employee Matching Gifts project.
This comes after Disney raised roughly $16 million for Hurricane Harvey relief just last month.
The destruction from both hurricanes left millions of people without power, and also caused major damage to many homes and communities.
