Bring your old cell phones to the pre-event!
Have any of those old cell phones lying around the house, long out of battery life and way out of style? Bring them to the pre-event to recycle them! Not only does this keep Hershey beautiful by preventing hazardous waste but it will also help others around the world! We will be donating them to Hope Phones which is an amazing organization!
FREE Kick-off Breakfast!
This year Kiss Hershey Back will have a FREE breakfast before the clean up from 8 am to 11 am at the Hershey Medical Center Campus. Nothing like some delicious free food before helping give back to the community!
A little about KHB
Kiss Hershey Back is a township-wide cleanup effort led by College of Medicine students to try and make the Sweetest Place on Earth also the Cleanest Place on Earth. This project was started four years ago by five first year medical students who wanted to give back to the community. This community-driven event was supported by the Derry Township Board and Department of Public Works along with local community organizations and businesses. In its first year, more than 800 community members turned out on the date to pick up litter in Derry Township’s parks, near its greenways, and along its rural roads.
This year Kiss Hershey Back will be April 27th, 2013 from 10 am to 1 pm. The schedule is as follows: breakfast will be from 8 am to 9:30, getting ready for the clean up from 9:30 - 10 am, and the actual clean up/planting from 10 am to 1 pm.
