More details regarding the Disney Parks layoffs continue to come to light. And now, the Cast Member Pantry is expanding to the West Coast to help the Disneyland Resort workers in need.

Around 28,000 Cast Members across Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort are being laid off. And thousands of workers are still on furlough, even as the theme parks of the Disneyland Resort remain closed. To help the magic makers who need more than a little pixie dust, Walt Disney World Cast Member Emily Lartigue started Cast Member Pantry after she was furloughed.

Since the Cast Member Pantry began this spring, it has gained an abundance of media attention. Even the voice of Olaf Josh Gad has made a donation!

Now, the Cast Member Pantry is expanding to California so the Cast Members of the Disneyland Resort can also receive assistance during this tumultuous time.
