The Pottsgove Soccer Club, Football Club and Athletic Booster Club presented the Jefferson Hospital Patient Cancer Center with a $2,729 donation Tuesday.

This donation was achieved by the hard work of all three groups and Pottsgrove Soccer and Football players during October's Cancer Awareness Month. 

Pottsgrove soccer players held their annual Cancer Awareness charity game; Pottsgrove football players held Pink-Out night, the Football Club and Booster Clubs worked together in selling spirit wear and collecting donations all October long.

Present for the donation was Dr. Carl Sharer, Clinical Nursery Manager Althea Leacock, and Nurse Judy Depue of Jefferson Hospital.

Present from Pottsgrove were seniors Adam Gifalfaco, Ryan Finn, Will Kaiser, Patrick O'Brian, and Nate Yuchimink. 

Also present were Pottsgrove Soccer Coaches Jay Witkowski, Kevin Grimm, Jeff Erb, Pottsgrove Football Coach Rick Pennypacker, School Board Director Patti Grimm, and Booster Club President/School Board Director Albert Leach and Vice President Danielle Leach.

The money donated by the clubs will go a long way to helping local families dealing with the most destructive disease of cancer. 

The money will help patients and family receive therapy, food, shuttle services, personal care, and so much more.
