The pickup for the unmatched sheets are during our designated Wednesday donation drop-offs from 1:45pm-3:15pm.
Once the sheets are picked up at Welcome Home, the volunteer will take home the unmatched sheets.
In the quiet and COVID-safety of your own home, volunteers will fold and bundle the sheets. Once the bundles are prepared and ready to be returned for shelving at Welcome Home, the bundles are to be returned the following Wednesday to drop-off and pickup more bedding. This is an ongoing project for the volunteers.
Directions to Welcome Home:
Welcome Home is located in Trinity Church,
11 Homer Street in Newton Centre.
BUT our door and donation drop-off location is at the back of the church, on Furber Lane, a one-way street off of Homer Street.
Our designated Wednesday donation drop-offs operate on a weekly basis which is the time needed to fold and bundle the newly formed sheet sets.

Volunteers will need to drive to Welcome Home (see directions above) on Wednesday donation drop-off day.
