Hershey’s Donates Baskets to the Domestic Violence Shelter March 19, 2010

Hershey’s doesn’t just have great chocolate, they also give back with BIG hearts.


I received a gift card from Hershey to create  Easter baskets that I could donate to whoever I chose. I decided the children at the local Battered Women’s  Shelter were more than deserving! So off I went to Walmart and I filled my cart with hershey’s candy that is only sold at Walmarts and not at other retail locations.





I called the shelter and found out there were four       children, so i put together four baskets and of course included other goodies for them like crazy straws, jumpropes, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and coloring books.


The best part is that the children will be told that this was given to them from Hershey’s! I think Hershey’s just made four children very happy this Easter!   

I had a few helpers and I think we created wonderful Easter baskets!

Now don’t YOU want to HELP???????

Keep reading and see how you and Hershey’s can make a difference this Easter!


Hershey’s has partnered with Children’s Miracle Network and they are hosting this #BetterBasket Blog Hop. Hershey’s will donate $10 per blog post written using the specific rules up to $5,000 to the Children’s Miracle Network. It’s so easy to participate and will only take a few minutes of your time.
