POTTSTOWN HELPS WITH FOOD DROP-OFF – Individuals, families, and local businesses all made their way Sunday afternoon (March 15, 2020) to Pottstown High School, and dropped off hundreds of pounds of food donations (above and below) that will be delivered during the period in which schools are closed for the coronavirus outbreak. A large number of students in the borough face food scarcity problems, High School Principal Danielle McCoy said on her Facebook page, and many usually eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner in school district cafeterias. That won’t be possible while schools are shuttered until month’s end, under Gov. Tom’s Wolf’s orders, so the district has organized distribution points for non-perishable food donations. Superintendent Stephen Rodriguez said it will distribute five days worth of food at a time, once each week, at each of Pottstown’s four elementary schools. Food donations continue to be accepted; an Amazon list created by McCoy makes it easy, or send her an e-mail at DanielleRMcCoy@gmail.com.
