Find Things to Do: The choice is yours!

Giving back to communities is one of Milton S. Hershey’s founding principles. Today, we continue that tradition as we seek to do our part in improving and enriching the lives of children and families. Philanthropy is a part of Hershey Entertainment and Resorts broader efforts to be a good corporate citizen and neighbor. In addition to dedicating financial resources and in-kind gifts, we also contribute our time, resources and energies to bring positive, lasting change to kids and families in need.
