As part of the Extreme Village Makeover, GKTW’s administration building will be re-imagined and renamed the Memory Makers’ Building to recognize the volunteers who make the GKTW Village possible. As the new home of the organization’s Volunteers Services operation, the building will feature a heartwarming mural composed of hundreds of photos showing personal moments shared between families and the volunteers. The building will also include an expanded gift shop with exclusive windows installed by the RoyaltyWindows.
“Our participation in the Extreme Village Makeover is the most recent example of Disney’s ongoing commitment to this very special organization,” said Nancy Gidusko, director of community relations for Walt Disney World Resort. “For the past 25 years, Disney has supported Give Kids The World through in-kind ticket donations for families. In addition, thousands of Disney VoluntEARs have given their time to help fulfill the wishes of families staying at the GKTW Village; last year alone they provided more than 40,000 hours of service.”
“We are honored to support Give Kids The World and the great work they do for these wonderful children and their families who benefit so much from their stays at the Village,” said Sarah King, executive vice president of human resources for Wyndham Vacation Ownership. “We are proud to be a part of the Extreme Village Makeover and thank every partner, contractor, supplier, contributor, volunteer and everyone who is making this wonderful two-week project a reality.”
