Last Call for Naming Opportunities

As construction continues on the new Hershey Community Center, the Capital Campaign that supports it is winding down.

The Hershey Community Center Capital Campaign will accept pledges of $5,000 or more until July 6, 2021 in order to start processing naming recognitions for donors. If you’re interested in making a pledge of $5,000 or more and wish to have a naming opportunity, please complete your pledge form by visiting the Community Center website. Pledges may be paid over time through the end of 2024. Many naming opportunities are still available.

One-time donations will still be accepted via check on an ongoing basis. Donations made through the end of 2021 will support the Capital Campaign. Donations received after that time will support ongoing programming for the community. Please send checks to this address:

The new Hershey Community Center is scheduled to open in the summer of 2022 and will feature a large outdoor pool with spray features, an indoor warm water leisure pool, a competitive lap indoor pool, basketball court that can be used for Pickle Ball, volleyball, and futsal, a teen center, classrooms, and indoor walking track. It will also be the new home of the senior center and People Mover’s Transportation. Overall, the pools will offer about 3,000 square feet more water than the previous recreation center.

To date, close to 2.8 million dollars has been pledged to the Community Center. Thank you to all the generous supporters. You can learn more about the project and see updates on construction on the Community Center website at
