Keeping Pennsylvania growing means managing the forest resource. With 16.62 million acres of forestland, Pennsylvania has the most abundant hardwood forest in the Nation! The Pennsylvania Hardwoods Development Council (HDC) is responsible for the development, expansion, and promotion of the hardwoods industry. Wood is the greenest building material – it’s a renewable resource that stores carbon! From our forests come an array of products including lumber, veneer, cabinetry, flooring, pallets, furniture, baseball bats, maple syrup, drumsticks, heating pellets, and much more! The forest products industry employs over 60,000 Pennsylvanians and has a $21.8 billion annual direct impact to the state's economy. Learn more about the industry and forest and how the HDC and partners work to promote, support and enhance our resource. Working Forests Work!
Celebrating 100 years of fostering innovation and passion for gardening and horticultural excellence nationwide, the American Horticultural Society (AHS) serves as the country’s most respected and longstanding gardening organization. From its National Children & Youth Garden Symposium which brings educators together to encourage the future of responsible horticulture, to its Reciprocal Admissions Program granting members special admission privileges to gardens throughout North America, to recognizing horticultural champions through its Great American Gardeners Awards, Book Awards, and Environmental Awards, AHS is dedicated to making America “a land of sustainable gardens, cultivated by a diverse population with a common passion for plants.” Join today!
The Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA) offers a variety of home loan products at competitive rates to help with your home purchase. Since down payment and closing costs are often the largest hurdle to homeownership, PHFA offers a small second loan to help cover those costs. We also have a loan product that can combine home repair costs with your mortgage, avoiding the need for two separate loans. Homebuyer education is available to buyers at no cost. The more you learn about PHFA’s home loans, the more you’ll like. Visit our website at www.PHFA.org/homebuyers, or call our Customer Solutions Center during weekday hours to have brochures mailed to you. That number is 1-855-827-3466; when you hear the recording start, dial “0” for a customer service representative. We appreciate your interest!

Children's Miracle Network (CMN) funds life-saving equipment, vital patient programs, and innovative research to help provide the best possible care to sick and injured children in our community. Since CMN began locally in 1984, Children's Miracle Network has raised more than $91 million for Penn State Health Children's Hospital.
In 2023, CMN Hershey earned two awards - highest overall fundraising and highest per capita fundraising for medium-sized CMN Hospitals. Those funds are raised, often one dollar at a time, by individual donors, Miracle Families, corporate partners, and community fundraisers who are all passionate about changing kids' health. Together, we give children the gift of growing up.
