Kiss Hershey Back!
May 7, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Kiss Hershey Back! is a township-wide cleanup effort led by the Penn State College of Medicine students to try and make the Sweetest Place on Earth also the Cleanest Place on Earth. This project was started in 2008 by five first year medical students who wanted to give back to the community. They kicked off their idea by seeking the support of the Derry Township Board of Supervisors and the Department of Public Works, engaging the local school districts, community groups and organizations, and businesses to talk about how to get township residents involved. It was estimated that during the first Kiss Hershey Back! event, 26-28 cubic yards of trash and 8-10 cubic yards of recyclables were collected. Ever since then the event has only grown and the current board hopes to make this year the best KHB yet!
This year Kiss Hershey Back will be Saturday, May 7, 2016 from 11 am to 2 pm. The schedule is as follows: pre-event will be from 9 am to 9:30, out to sites by 9:30 am, and the actual clean up/planting from 9:45 am to 11:45 pm. Post-event is from 12:00 pm-2:00 pm.
