Amusement Parks: Hersheypark Makes Donation to Children’s Miracle Network


Each year Hersheypark hosts millions of visitors, many of whom take a moment to make a wish and drop a coin or two into one of the Park’s fountains. These coins are collected and used to assist sick children and their families, who have plenty of wishes of their own. 

At the end of 2009, the coins from the Park’s fountains were gathered, and that money – along with a portion of the admission to Hershey Sweet Lights, A Holiday Drive-Thru Spectacular – was donated to Children’s Miracle Network. On January 13, on behalf of its guests, Hersheypark issued a check in the amount of $16, 115 to Children’s Miracle Network at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. The donation is used to support the hospital’s pediatric services. 
Children’s Miracle Network is an international non-profit organization that has affiliations with 170 children’s hospitals. Children’s Miracle Network at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital serves the Harrisburg, Lancaster, Lebanon and York region. The mission of Children’s Miracle Network is to raise funds for children’s services and create community awareness of children’s issues.

Hershey Entertainment & Resorts is proud to help fulfill the dream of our mutual founder, Milton S. Hershey, by supporting Milton Hershey School, the largest home and school in the world, as it continues to provide opportunities for children in need.
