If you miss writing out THONvelopes and decorating Kids Mail, or just want to brighten someone’s day, we have a brand new opportunity for you!
The Hershey Kids Mail Drive is requesting store-bought cards with personal messages of inspiration for children at Penn State Children’s Hospital during THON weekend.
Please send cards to 227D HUB-Robeson Center, State College, PA 16801, before January 27. This initiative will help bring inspiration to kids receiving their treatment at Hershey who cannot attend THON 2017.
Not sure what to write? Suggestions from THON include positive and uplifting messages, inspirational quotes or song lyrics, and “thinking of you” messaging.
Be sure NOT to include the following: mentioning of holidays, THON weekend, illness/being sick, or messages like “Keep fighting!” We want these kids to forget about getting treatment and just let them be kids.
If you have any questions, send a message to THON’s Alumni Campaigns Coordinator, James Costalas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
