HERSHEY BEARS CARES

Hershey Bears CARES Logo

For 86 years, our Hershey Bears® hockey club has been thrilling fans on the ice. Off the ice, this storied American Hockey League team has prioritized giving back to the community and connecting with fans. Since 2018, the Hershey Bears Cares charitable initiative has been the platform to highlight the organization’s community outreach and engagement. In a typical season, our players, coaches and staff members participate in dozens of meaningful events and appearances. It is a way for the team to thank the best fans in the league and give back to the community.

2023-24 Hershey Bears Community Programs


The Hershey Bears hockey club recognizes the importance of the community and the support it provides to the team. Hershey Bears Cares programs and events promote wellness, health, literacy and giving back. From visiting patients at the Milton S. Hershey Penn State Health Children's Hospital to hosting the annual record-setting Teddy Bear Toss, to raising needed dollars for area organizations through our jersey auctions, to hosting thousands of soldiers and Veterans at games throughout the season, our Hershey Bears are champions on and off the ice.


Hershey Bears Roaring to Read

Roaring to Read

Roaring to Read was formed to motivate youth in the community to develop a love for reading and promote the value, importance and enjoyment of reading and literacy among students in kindergarten through fifth grade. The Hershey Bears connect with numerous elementary schools in the Central PA area to incentivize students with a complimentary ticket to a Bears home game once the student completes their school's reading challenge.
