On Saturday, Sept. 28, Macaroni Kid Reading-Pottstown invites the entire community to come out and join in a fun-filled day to raise money for a great local non-profit organization, Children’s Home of Reading.

CHOR provides services to help children and families in crisis in Berks County and the surrounding communities. For more than 125 years, this organization has helped and continues to care for the needs of children and families by providing support and helping them prepare for success in life through residential programs, academic school programs, and community-based programs.

Macaroni Kid Reading-Pottstown supports their local community by providing a free weekly online newsletter containing a calendar of local events, recipes, local business spotlights, book reviews, giveaways, and more to help keep your family entertained.
