$30,000 GRANTed by Disney to Boys Town Central Florida

Boys ​Town Central Florida is excited to announce that it has been chosen once again as a recipient of the Disney Grant. This year’s grants totaling $5.6 million were given to 120 nonprofits throughout Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Lake and Polk counties, with the specific focus area of strengthening children, families, and communities.

Executive Director Greg Zbylut and Board Chairman Keith Britton were honored to attend the awards breakfast this year and receive the coveted “Mousecar” statue.

“The Disney grant is an excellent example of collaborating to make a difference for the children and families of Central Florida. Our partners are crucial to our mission,” said Zbylut.

“I am excited that we are receiving this grant for a second time,” said Terry Knox, Boys Town Central Florida Development Director. “Disney believes in our mission and the work we do with children and families.”

Boys Town Central Florida will use this generous grant to help fund the In-Home Family Services®program in Seminole and Orange counties, providing trained family consultants to help parents improve their parenting skills and find positive solutions to common family problems.

Boys Town wishes to extend a big “Thank You” to Disney for this grant in recognition of the work we do for children and families in Central Florida.
