Woodstream gifts $100,000 to Children’s Miracle Network at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital
Woodstream Corporation announced a $100,000 gift to Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital to fund life-saving equipment, family-centered programs and transformative research. The gift marks the start of a new partnership between CMN and Woodstream. Employees celebrated the announcement during a virtual kick-off event on Oct. 8. Woodstream also matched gifts raised by employees, resulting in an additional $5,050 contribution.
Woodstream, a pest and animal control and birding company, is headquartered in downtown Lancaster, Pa. and has six additional locations, including Mechanicsburg and Lititz. “Children’s Miracle Network is an important charity partner for Woodstream because our community mission is to give to those organizations where we live that help our neighbors, friends, and employees,” said Miguel Nistal, president and CEO of Woodstream.
“This is an incredible way to jumpstart a wonderful partnership, and we are grateful to Woodstream for recognizing the need to support life-saving care for local sick and injured children in our community,” said Danielle Sunday, executive director, health system development at Penn State Health. “From programs like Child Life that help make the hospital experience less scary for kids, to equipment for our Life Lion team, and to care items for families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Woodstream’s support will give kids the #GiftofGrowingUp.” Woodstream’s Knoxville location is also raising funds for Children’s Miracle Network at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.
