POTTSTOWN >> More than $20,000 was do­nated to area char­i­ties in 2018 by em­ploy­ees at Pottstown Hos­pi­tal — Tower Health.

A por­tion of the do­na­tions were made through “Ca­sual for a Cause,” a weekly dress-down day spear­headed by the Cel­e­brate and Rec­og­nize Em­ploy­ees’ Work com­mit­tee (CREW) at Pottstown Hos­pi­tal.

The Cel­e­brate and Rec­og­nize Em­ploy­ees’ Work com­mit­tee was es­tab­lished in 2013 as a way to en­gage em­ploy­ees in ef­forts to give back to the com­mu­nity. Each week, em­ploy­ees pay $3 for a “Ca­sual for a Cause” sticker that al­lows them wear jeans and Pottstown Hos­pi­tal spirit wear on Fri­days. At the end of the month, the to­tal col­lected that month is cal­cu­lated and a check is sent to the des­ig­nated char­ity on be­half of the hos­pi­tal em­ploy­ees.

“I am con­tin­u­ally amazed by the gen­eros­ity of Pottstown Hos­pi­tal’s em­ploy­ees,” Rich Newell, Pottstown Hos­pi­tal pres­i­dent and CEO, said in a press re­lease. “Whether it is sup­port­ing ‘Ca­sual for a Cause,’ vol­un­teer­ing in the Pottstown com­mu­nity, serv­ing on boards of lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions and col­lect­ing shoes for “In Ian’s Boots,” among many other ser­vice op­por­tu­ni­ties, Pottstown Hos­pi­tal’s em­ploy­ees are en­gaged in the com­mu­nity and en­joy help­ing to make a dif­fer­ence.”

Or­ga­ni­za­tions sup­ported in 2018, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease, in­clude the Pottstown Li­brary, TriCounty Ac­tive Adult Cen­ter, Foun­da­tion for Pottstown Ed­u­ca­tion, Amaz­ing Raise and Boy­er­town Multi-Ser­vice. Health-re­lated or­ga­ni­za­tions sup­ported by Pottstown Hos­pi­tal — Tower Health “Ca­sual for a Cause” in­clude The Amer­i­can Heart As­so­ci­a­tion’s Go Red for Women, Gift of Life, Na­tional Stroke As­so­ci­a­tion and The Amer­i­can Can­cer So­ci­ety’s Real

Men Wear Pink. Ac­cord­ing to the re­lease,

$12,000 was raised by em­ploy­ees through hos­pi­tal em­ploy­ees’ par­tic­i­pa­tion in TriCounty Net­work’s Amaz­ing Raise — a giv­ing chal­lenge de­signed to, “help raise needed funds, shin­ing a spot­light

on the work of non-prof­its in the Tri-County Area (Mont­gomery County, Eastern Berks County, North­ern Ch­ester County).”
