The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida recently received $10,000 from Walt Disney World Resort through Disney Grants. The Holocaust Center will use the funding to support its education programming, particularly the UpStanders bullying-prevention initiative.

"We are thrilled with Disney's ongoing support, and honored to be chosen for this grant award," said the Center's Executive Director Pam Kancher. "Their dedication to our community is important to all of us, and we appreciate their continued investment in our mission and our programs."

Along with 120 other nonprofits and organizations throughout Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Lake and Polk counties, The Holocaust Center was granted by Disney and received a special "Mousecar" award. In all, more than $5.6 million in Disney Grants will be awarded in support of efforts to positively impact the lives of over 300,000 local children and their families.

The grants support Central Floridians through a variety of services such as after-school programs for students, bonding activities for new parents and anti-bullying awareness skills.
