How did we get our name?

In the Magic Kingdom, Character meet & greet sets were assigned to different areas in the park, Area 1, Area 2 etc.

Area 3 was assigned in Frontierland somewhere near the Pirates attraction. The shift was not the most appealing with the break area being outside, in the heat with little to no shade. In addition, the shift was a full day with very limited interaction with other characters and people, other than the guests on set.  It was no wonder that one was left feeling a little isolated. It made sense to name the foundation after Area 3 because we never want anyone to feel alone when they have their entire Zoo Crew family to support them when they want to continue their education or are experiencing a crisis.
