‘Middle School Market’ Open Monday to Those in Need

UPPER POTTSGROVE PA – Students and staff at Pottsgrove Middle School have spent weeks accumulating more than 2,500 pounds of food to be distributed Monday (Nov. 22, 2021) to school district families in need. They’re ready to ensure those who need something extra for their Thanksgiving table can obtain it.

The abundance of food brought to the middle school campaign has heartened students, parents, staff, and building principals, because so many people can benefit.

The first intended recipients are Pottsgrove residents themselves. They’re being invited to what’s described as the “Middle School Market” on Monday from noon to 8 p.m. (with an hour-long closure at dinner time), inside the building’s library at 1351 N. Hanover St.

The “Falcon Community Helpers” event is being coordinated by Middle School faculty members. It’s open to any family that needs dinner table assistance, they added. Those who arrive are welcome to “shop” and pick up a free bag of food or a new winter coat.

Once the market closes, whatever goods remain will be packed and transported to the Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities’ food pantry on North Franklin Street in the borough, so Pottsgrove neighbors can benefit too.
