A Home Goods Pantry
March 2022
news & updates
Welcome Home Friends and Supporters:

March in New England feels hopeful as winter gives way to spring. At Welcome Home we accept thousands of home goods donations each month that are sorted, packed, and go directly to our clients.

Organizing your linen closet? We are in particular need of Queen sized blankets and sheets. Cleaning your kitchen? We are low on plates, silverware, and small appliances. Holiday decorations are welcome too. Schedule an appointment here to drop off your items. Your financial donations, home goods donations, and volunteer service make all of our work possible. Thank you!
