Posted July 18

— The Hershey Company plans to reach a major milestone on Tuesday at its annual meal-donation event.

The company says they will package its one-millionth meal to donate.

More than 700 employees are expected to participate and they plant to package hundreds of thousands of meals in just about 3 hours.

Employees will volunteer from 1-4 p.m. at the Giant Center.
