The Hershey Company has been around for more than 100 years and has always been a leader in making a positive difference in communities. One example of a positive community difference that founder, Milton Hershey and his wife Catherine, made was the opening of the Milton Hershey School (MHS) in 1909 which was dedicated to helping boys of less fortunate means. Today, the Hershey Trust Company is the largest shareholder, after Milton donated his personal fortune, making the school the largest beneficiary of the Hershey Company and it is now a coeducational home and school. The school provides a free world-class education, as well as meals, clothing, a nurturing home, health care, counseling and career training, to nearly 2,000 children in social and financial need. The employees of the Hershey Company remain aware that MHS students depend on the company’s continued success.
