Support the Disney Workers & Their Kids for the Holidays

Here’s a very important announcement from OC Young Democrats. They’re giving all of us a chance to spread some holiday cheer to families who may not have much otherwise. Oh yes, and this is a chance for us to stand in solidarity with the Disney hotel workers who are still being stiffed by “The Mouse”. Please stop by next week & bring a toy or two for these kids in need.

Dear Reader,

UNITE HERE, the union representing the Disney Hotel workers, is planning an action on December 18th from 5:00 to 7:00 PM in front of the Paradise Pier Hotel. In the spirit of the holidays, UNITE HERE will be collecting 2000 toys to give to the children of Disney hotel workers. Please join the Orange County Young Democrats, UNITE HERE, Disney hotel workers, and other community members in this action to support the hotel workers during the holidays.

In addition to a picket line, a delegation of 40 children (who are children of Disney hotel workers) will deliver to the heads of Disney a holiday card asking for health care for their parents for Christmas. The toys will then be distributed to the children, and the picket line will sing songs and carols.

The Young Democrats have been an integral part of this movement from the beginning. For more information on the struggle of the Disney hotel workers, visit our web site.

Please bring your toy donations to the next OCYD meeting on Thursday, December 11th at Bistro 400.
