Hershey recognized as a leading community-minded company for the 10th consecutive year

June 27, 2022
Throughout 2021, Hershey employees volunteered more than 117,000 hours and the company donated nearly $15 million in cash and products globally.

The Hershey Company announced its 10th year of being named an honoree of The Civic 50 by Points of Light, the world's largest nonprofit dedicated to accelerating people-powered change. Hershey has made this list since its inception and 2022 marks the second consecutive year that Points of Light named the company as the Consumer Staples Sector Leader.

"We're honored to be named a Civic 50 Honoree for the 10th year and recognized as the leader in the consumer staples sector," Leigh Horner, vice president of corporate communications and global sustainability, said in the announcement. "Hershey's legacy of showing up and doing the right thing for our people and communities is core to who we are as a business. That legacy attracts employees who strive to be part of something bigger than themselves. This award reflects our culture of making a difference."

Throughout 2021, Hershey employees volunteered more than 117,000 hours and the company donated nearly $15 million in cash and products globally. This year, the company integrated social impact with its iconic brands through Hershey's CelebrateSHE campaign with non-profit partner Girls on the Run, as well as the ongoing Kit Kat and Hershey's Beat of the Future campaign with nonprofit partner Memphis Music Initiative.

Since 2012, The Civic 50 has provided a national standard for corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and resources to drive social impact in their communities and company. The Civic 50 honorees are companies with annual U.S. revenues of at least $1 billion and are selected based on four dimensions of their corporate citizenship and social impact programs: investment of resources, integration across business functions, institutionalization through policies and systems and impact measurement.
