Despicable Me 3 and Boys & Girls Club of America Partner for "Merry Minions" Holiday Program
Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America are teaming up for a "Merry Minions" Holiday Program, a joint venture designed to celebrate the season with help from the home entertainment release of Despicable Me 3-- the biggest animated film of the year presented by Illumination and UPHE -- and the iconic Minions. Despicable Me 3 has grossed over $1 billion at the global box office and is available now on Digital and on Blu-ray™, DVD, On Demand and 4K Ultra HD on December 5, 2017.
The "Merry Minions" Holiday Program will take place during the month of December. Kids from the Boys & Girls Club will work together to create holiday ornaments or gift items, decorate baked goods, design artwork inspired by the Minions, hold Minion-themed screening parties, and more. The clubs will be able to use the kits to create fundraising events, community service projects, opportunities for volunteer support functions, gift-giving and mentoring/teaching lessons for youths.
