Folding & Bundling Sheet Sets

DURATION

2-4 hours

WHERE

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 pick up 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. 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).
