ABC Is Also Using the Singalong to Raise Awareness About Nationwide Hunger

The majority of the nation is living under stay-at-home orders in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Self-distancing measures and mandatory business closures have resulted in missed paychecks for millions of people who have been laid off from their jobs.

In addition to being an evening meant to uplift spirits, ABC is also using the Disney Singalong event to raise awareness about nationwide efforts to provide food to those in need. ABC will air public service announcements about Feeding America. The organization supports more than 200 food banks across the country and their services are needed more than ever due to the virus.
