Pottstown Explosion

“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” – Coretta Scott King

Efforts to help the victims of the May 26 Hale Street home explosion continue to become more organized. The Pottstown Explosion Support Fund has currently raised over $47,000 to help meet the basic needs of affected residents, provide housing in the near term, and aid with long-term recovery. Killed in the explosion were Francine White, 67; Alana Wood, 13; Jeremiah White, 12; Nehemiah White, 10, and Tristan White, 8. Injured and hospitalized from the blast were Eugene White, 44, and Kristina Matuzsan, 32. Additionally, several homes in the area were damaged and are not currently inhabitable. Some may even need to be torn down. This fund helps them as well.

To donate and learn more about the fund, visit pottstownfoundation.org/disasterfund. Checks may be made out to and mailed to TriCounty Community Network’s office at 724 N. Adams St., #203, Pottstown, PA 19464, with Pottstown Explosion Support Fund in the memo line.
