MHS Elementary Students Give Back to Local Community

Milton Hershey School elementary students recently learned the importance of giving back to their local community by volunteering at Cocoa Packs—a Hershey food assistance program that’s committed to making sure every child has the basic nutrition they need to be successful.

MHS students spent the day packaging food for local families, restocking pantry shelves, and unloading donations into the center. By volunteering their time to serve children in the community who experience food shortages, MHS students developed empathy for others and gained a deeper connection to the Hershey community.

Milton Hershey School encourages students of all ages to get involved in their community through service learning opportunities. By giving back to others, MHS students gain valuable character and leadership skills and become empowered to give back on a local and national level.
