COVID-19 Sources for Nonprofits & Local Businesses

Local businesses and individuals have contributed money and time to support needs that have been magnified by the COVID-19 crisis. These sources provide funds to community organizations and outreach programs, allowing them to serve better. New funds have been created specifically to benefit those struggling most during this pandemic. Through them, we hope for a brighter future.

 

Support Opportunities 

 

Tri-County Community Network (TCN)
https://tcnetwork.org/

TCN supports nonprofit organizations and local small businesses that provide essential services to the community. During the pandemic, TCN continues to partner with organizations that serve our community, including the MontCoPA COVID-19 Response Fund. The Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation is one of the proud supporters of this fund.
