Children’s Hospital Gets $1,000,000 Gift from Hershey

Yesterday the Hershey Company and Penn State announced a $1 million gift to the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital at the Penn State Hershey Medical Center.

The money, which puts the hospital within $3 million of its $65 million fundraising goal, will be used to establish The Hershey Co. Safety Center. Penn State Live explains,

Located in the Family and Child Resource Center on the first floor of the new Children’s Hospital, the Safety Center will be a convenient place for the public to buy child safety products at low prices and receive free injury prevention information. Trained health educators will be on site to answer questions on important safety topics and provide guidance on product use, such as how to correctly fit a helmet and install a child safety seat.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.

With no canning weekends held this year and canvassing eventually suspended as well, this year’s total is a testament to how committed THON volunteers truly are.
