FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Grinch will not steal Christmas from Pottstown...
Yesterday morning we received a call that our Santa House and Christmas Storage Trailer had been broken into, items stolen and a lot of damage done to the house and trailer. Given our few resources to hold our holiday events, it saddens us to think the Grinch would visit our town and leave such destruction. But very much like the story in Whoville, Pottstown is a community that will notT allow this to change our mission of bringing hundreds of children and families holiday cheer. We are asking if you can help us to replace the missing and damaged items. If you can make a contribution or volunteer your time our entire community would appreciate it! For more information contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 610-323-5400.


“Maybe, Christmas he thought, doesn’t come from a store...maybe
Christmas, perhaps means a little bit more”
Thank you!
