Wareham Village Funeral Home thanks local businesses for successful food, clothing drive

Nov 23, 2022

The Wareham Village Funeral Home collected over 300 pieces of warm clothing and almost 500 nonperishable food items in its first winter food and clothing drive, which began on Sunday, Oct. 23 and ended Sunday, Nov. 20. 

“I think it’s great for a first year,” said Wareham Village Funeral Home owner Chris Consoletti. “I think getting the world out is most important. We had a lot of anonymous donations, which was really nice.”

The clothing items, which will be given to the Church of the Good Shepherd along with the food, included scarves, gloves, mittens and socks. 

Consoletti worked with local churches and food pantries to find out exactly what locals needed for this holiday season and the cold winter ahead. He found that toiletries were sorely needed, and received dozens of them from donors. 

The Consoletti family, along with the staff of the Wareham Village Funeral Home, thanked those who donated for their generosity.

They also thanked the businesses that supported the drive:

The Tremont Rehabilitation and Skilled Care Center

Master Millworks of West Wareham

Cape Cod Roofing and Siding

Taunton Fire Prevention

Wareham Barber Shop

Riverside Café
