What is #GivingTuesday?

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.

On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. It is a day that reminds us all that giving is much more than the exchange of material goods—it means giving back to your community by volunteering, helping out a neighbor in need, and by donating.

Meals on Wheels Fundraiser a Success!

On behalf of the staff, volunteers and clients of Family Services’ Meals on Wheels program, I would like to thank the greater Pottstown community for their support of the Annual Meals on Wheels Fundraising Event featuring The Fabulous Greaseband on Saturday, October 4.

We welcomed nearly 400 energetic music fans to Sunnybrook Ballroom that evening, including a few birthday celebrations. What a clever way to celebrate a milestone!
