The Hershey Company Grants $10,000 to CCRF
CCRF Champion Spotlight: The Hershey Company
Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation is proud to announce that we have again partnered with the Hershey Company to improve the lives of children with cancer in locations where the company has a presence. The Hershey Company granted CCRF $10,000 to support the Helping Hands Fund, which provides emergency financial assistance to families of children being treated for cancer. With the company’s generous support, CCRF will be able to provide over 30 families critical help with monthly bills during their child’s treatment. Payments are made directly to utility companies and landlords for those facing financial difficulties of a cancer diagnosis. The Helping Hands Fund ensures that each child has a warm, safe place to call home while recovering from cancer.
