Despite freezing temperatures and the Christmas season, Pottstown officials thwarted three churches from feeding and sheltering vulnerable homeless people who were seeking relief. Borough officials blame their actions on “wealthier towns.”
  • Three churches say Pottstown officials have stopped them from offering shelter, meals and help to those experiencing poverty. 
  • Pottstown Borough Council told NBC10 that other wealthier towns in Montgomery County weren’t doing enough to share the responsibility of helping the homeless, putting an unfair burden on Pottstown taxpayers. 
  • The churches have all appealed, saying helping those in need is their first amendment right to free exercise of religion.
