LOS ANGELES, Nov 10, 2003 -- The Salvation Army and DisneyHand, worldwide outreach for The Walt Disney Company, announced today that they will work together this holiday season, during which DisneyHand will assist more than 3,500 homeless and low-income men, women and children in Southern California who will turn to The Salvation Army for assistance during Thanksgiving and Christmas.

"We are truly blessed to have the help of DisneyHand this holiday season," said Lt. Colonel Alfred Van Cleef, Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army Southern California Division. "Their generous financial and volunteer support of The Salvation Army will enable us to assist thousands of families in need."
