Give Kids the World Announces it Will Not be Re-Opening with the Parks

Pamela Landwirth, Give Kids The World President & CEO announced today that they have made the difficult decision to remain closed when the Parks reopen.

The statement reads as follows:

“It is with a heavy heart that I must share some devastating news both for me personally and for our entire Village family.

Unforeseen circumstances directly related to COVID-19 have resulted in Give Kids The World having to remain closed. Although the theme parks are reopening, we are uncertain as to when they will be able to welcome vulnerable guests, including our wish children.

The Village, therefore, will remain closed for an undetermined period of time. Unfortunately, this means we must lay off the majority of our staff effective Saturday, June 27, 2020. A small team will remain to ensure the safety and security of the Village and to nurture our relationships with you – our alumni families, volunteers, wish granting organizations, donors and other partners as well as prepare for our eventual reopening. If there is a rush wish prior to our reopening, we will work with our wish granting partners to fulfill that wish.

I can promise you that I will work tirelessly to find a way to reopen our beloved Village as soon as possible.

With love,
Pamela Landwirth
Give Kids The World President & CEO”
