Hobart’s Run has been challenged by Reading’s South of Penn Task Force to engage all of Pottstown in a friendly “clean-up competition” on March 28.
The dual-city event will start at 10 a.m. at both locations and finish at noon. After the clean-up’s conclusion, lunch will be served to the Pottstown volunteers at Hobart’s Run office.
And to make things more interesting and fun, volunteers are being invited to wear a superhero costume of their choice for the event. Overall creativity in coming up with homemade costumes, capes, and masks is welcomed. This is not required but is strongly encouraged.
The organizers are hoping that Pottstown will show its community spirit and help meet or even beat South of Penn Task Force’s goal of recruiting 500 volunteers.
Community partners who volunteer to host squads dedicated to particular sections of Pottstown will receive drop off trash bags and tools from the organizer.
“With all of the exciting, encouraging developments happening as part of Pottstown’s revitalization, this is a great opportunity to remove distracting, unsightly litter while demonstrating community pride, having fun with friends and neighbors, and setting a positive example for all residents,” said Cathy Skitko, Hobart’s Run director of communications.
