It appears the world’s most famous Mouse has its eyes on a Central Florida tech company.
The Walt Disney Company announced that Limbitless Solutions has landed one of 19 grants handed out Monday to companies in the region that are “making a difference.”
The grants totaled $1.5 million, with organizations like Children’s Home Society of Florida, Orlando Science Center and Zebra Coalition also landing on that list.
The monetary awards were meant for those “doing amazing work for our community,” according to a Disney blog post.
Limbitless Solutions specializes in designing, manufacturing and distributing prosthetic arms for children with limb differences.
The company has had some major wins since its 2014 launch, including a high-profile visit from Robert “Iron Man” Downey Jr. that went viral.
In the blog post, Disney leaders said the grants were an effort to support its hometown businesses.
“These are all initiatives we’re proud to support as a company. Our cast members also spend time personally volunteering with many of these organizations and others across the state through our Disney VoluntEARS program. So far this year, cast have spent more than 115,000 hours giving back to the place where we live, work and play!”
