Hometown Hero: Giant Foods donation to Penn State Children’s Hospital


More than 10,000 kids go to Penn State Children’s Hospital each year in need of cardiac care. 

This afternoon, in honor of Giant Food Stores 95th anniversary, the company donated $280,000 to the Children’s Miracle Network, to support the 3-D heart model printing program for children with congenital heart disease. 

Cardiologists say that the 3-D model helps them prepare for surgery. 

“Technology is constantly changing especially over the last several years since I have been here and a donation like this will keep our hospital at the forefront,” said Dr. Robert Tunks, Pediatric Cardiologist, Penn State Children’s Hospital. 

The donation will also help fund research efforts.
