Hershey Is Asking Everyone to Be Kind This Week

This week, Milton Hershey School and The Hershey Company are celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Week by asking people everywhere to say Thank You for the little things people do for them. From February 15-21, go to www.thehersheylegacy.com to share a virtual Hershey’s bar and some Hershey’s Happiness with friends and family.

Milton Hershey founded the Milton Hershey School in 1909 to help children in profound need. Because of this unprecedented act of kindness on the part of Mr. Hershey, Hershey’s chocolate lovers directly support Milton Hershey School, helping to foster opportunity to children in need.


«Random acts of kindness are small gestures that can have a big effect, as epitomized by Milton Hershey when he founded Milton Hershey School,» said Charlene Binder, Senior Vice President, Chief People Officer, The Hershey Company. «This is an opportunity to remind people of the profound impact one man had on children in need while thanking everyone who enjoys Hershey’s products

In celebration of the 100 years of support for Milton Hershey School, every standard and king-size Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar and Milk Chocolate Bar with Almonds contains a special «Thank You» message.
