Fun Today. Flourish Tomorrow.

Every day, Hershey Entertainment & Resorts provides fun for our guests — and that fun has a greater purpose. Our ultimate goal is to make sure the fun we are having today helps our people, our community, our planet, and especially our children flourish tomorrow.

We believe it is our responsibility as members of our local and regional communities and residents of our planet to understand our impact and aspire to do better.

Our Community

Mr. Hershey once asked, “What good is money unless you use it for the benefit of the community and humanity in general?” That is why our businesses, team members, and partners contribute their time, resources, and positive energy to our communities so everyone can share in our success.

Our Planet

In 1937, Mr. Hershey established the first recycling center in Hershey, and we remain inspired by his vision. We are careful custodians of our planet, committed to conservation and responsible growth so our children and grandchildren can enjoy Earth’s bountiful natural resources.
