Family Meals“Each quarter, Hershey Hearts provides a meal to families whose children are currently being treated at Penn State Children’s Hospital. This meal gives parents a chance to talk to one of our members as well as other families in the hospital. Parents can ask questions, share their stories and hear the stories of our Hershey Hearts representative. The purpose of our family meals is to offer hope and understanding to families in this tragic time.”
Each year, Hershey Hearts hosts a picnic for members and their families on the first Saturday in October at Hoffer Park in Middletown, PA. The pediatric cardiology staff from Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital is invited as well. The annual picnic is a great way for children with congenital heart disease and their families to reunite with other families and meet new ones that share similar experiences. There’s food, games and other activities for everyone to enjoy.
