Did you know that every time you buy Hersheyâ€™s part of the proceeds go to support the Milton Hershey School? The school began 100 years ago as a dream and vision shared by Milton Hershey and his wife Kitty. Unable to have children of their own, they took their wealth and created a home and school for orphaned boys in 1909. After his wife died, Milton Hershey gave his entire fortune to the School. Mr. Hershey has been quoted as having said, â€œThe School was Kittyâ€™s idea. If we had helped a hundred children it would have all been worthwhile.â€ One hundred years later, Milton and Kitty Hersheyâ€™s legacy lives on and has educated thousands of students. You can read more about Milton and Kittyâ€™s story and the school at www.thehersheylegacy.com.
