Chasen Hampton, a Mouseketeer, said “The recent COVID related layoffs have been excruciating for our MMC family…Our beloved magic makers are at the heart of any memory ever made in the place we all call home. The amount of smiles they’ve created, memories they’ve made and dreams they’ve granted… that’s forever, and we couldn’t be more proud to call them family.” Dale Godboldo, another Mouseketeer and Founder of Always In The Club/MMC’89 said, in regards to their decision to also benefit Cast Member Pantry, “We feel that once a Cast member, always a Cast member, so we couldn’t be more proud to help them in any way that we can.”
