HE&R Day of Service Benefits CMN Hershey

HE&R Supports CMN Hershey and other local groups

On Monday, January 20, more than 200 Hershey Entertainment & Resorts (HE&R) team members participated in the company’s second annual Day of Service in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. For the last 25 years, the country has been encouraged to take ‘a day on, not a day off‘ and our employees answered the call of service by helping thousands of area residents through a series of more than 20 projects.

Team members from across the company came together to help a dozen organizations:

Team members worked on a variety of projects that included stocking shelves, creating cards, writing thank-you notes, making kits and more. Here’s a look at everything we accomplished together:

  • 100 shirts sorted and wrapped for ACS
  • 84 BBBS match bags with crayons, coloring books, and jump ropes
  • Created 500 + mailers and packets made for CMN
  • Sorted clothing and food donations at Cocoa Packs, plus created more than 300 packs
  • Created 70 inspirational Hope Stars and 75 cards for Four Diamonds participants
  • Stocked shelves and sorted dozens of items at the Food Bank
  • 100+ handwritten letters for LLS
  • 50 kits packed for PFSA
  • Handwrote and stuffed more than 1,500 items for ARC
  • 250 mailings created for RMHC
  • More than 1,500 shower, dental and breakfast kits for UWCR
  • 155 Literacy Kits created for UWL

The best result of the day besides helping our community members? Spending time with colleagues from numerous departments, enjoying fellowship and meeting new people! Teams enjoyed giving back and connecting with each other. We are grateful for everyone’s assistance and thank you for your time.
