HELPSY is the largest clothing collection recycling company on the East Coast. In 2021, they helped to divert over 30 million tons of waste.

Welcome Home is a Newton non-profit that strives to provide families experiencing hardship with basic household items they need to live with dignity. They collect and redistribute like-new household items to dozens of people in need each month with no fees, no forms, and no requirements. Any items they cannot use are repurposed or recycled, thus benefiting the enivronment.

We need:

  • 4 volunteers for TODAY and on the dates shown below to help unload bagged clothing/textiles and/or household products from cars and into the HELPSY truck.
  • 1 volunteer from 12:30-1:30pm on the Monday following a collection to drive Welcome Home donations to the pantry (a medium-large car will be needed).

Collection Dates: May 21 - June 25 - July 23 - August 13 - September 17 from 9am - noon so you can help AND get done what you need to get done for the rest of the day. Help out (it's fun!) on some dates or all of them - whatever works for you!

The drives will be held at the Scandinavian Living Center, 206 Newton Street in West Newton.

This is also a fundraising opportunity for us! HELPSY pays the Rotary for each pound of clothing collected.
