Give Kids The World closing indefinitely because of coronavirus; 171 employees laid off

Give Kids The World — the sprawling fantasy-come-true resort that gives children with life-threatening illnesses and their families an all-expenses-paid vacation in Orlando — made the “devastating” decision Tuesday to close its doors indefinitely because of the coronavirus. The decision means the vast majority of the charity’s staff — 171 employees — will be laid off, effective June 27. The village may not reopen until there’s a vaccine.
