Pottstown CARES

The initial, joint CARES (Community, Awareness, Responsibility, Empowerment, and Sustainability) endeavor was conceived in the spring of 2013 during conversations between Borough Manager Mark Flanders, Pottstown School Superintendent Dr. Jeff Sparagana, and Hill School Headmaster Zachary Lehman. The three leaders envisioned a collaborative project that would help to “spruce up” a designated area in the core of Pottstown while boosting community pride. In 2014, Montgomery County Community College’s (MCCC) West Campus joined the CARES planning team.
Each fall, all Hill School students, as well as Hill faculty and staff, join forces with the Borough, Pottstown School District, and MCCC to weed, pick up trash, and complete other “spruce up” tasks in public spaces in the core downtown Pottstown area for an annual Pottstown CARES day in addition to smaller CARES initiatives that are held throughout the year.
