“All of us at Welcome Home are so grateful for the continued support of Chestnut Hill Square. We serve hundreds of people each month and towels are items that we just cannot get enough of as every family includes them in their request for household goods. Our clients are newly arrived immigrants, men and women leaving violent domestic situations, often with children, people who have experienced house fires, and many other circumstances that require making a new home. Donations received through this drive make a big, positive difference,” explains Julie Plaut Mahoney, Executive Director of Welcome Home.
“Chestnut Hill Square is pleased to continue our partnership with Welcome Home, and we look forward to a successful donation drive which will help our neighbors in need,” says Rebekah Macchia, Marketing Director of Chestnut Hill Square.

Welcome Home
Staffed by over 100 volunteers, Welcome Home accepts home goods from anyone wishing to donate and keep items out of landfills. These goods are cleaned, shelved, and made available to people struggling to meet their basic needs. Welcome Home was founded in 2016 when Mindy Peckler and Julie Plaut Mahoney saw a need to bridge the gap between older adults downsizing and purging usable home goods, and families in need. In 2019, the organization became a 501(c)(3). The organization collects and redistributes like-new household items. Any items that cannot be used are repurposed or recycled appropriately, thus benefiting the environment. Welcome Home’s vision is to see that every client receives the essential kitchen, bath, bedding, and additional items they need to turn any house into their home.
