  • Road to Responsibility Named Good Deeds’ Benefiting Charity for 4th Quarter of 2020

    Published on February 25, 2021

    MARSHFIELD, PEMBROKE, and SOUTH SHORE: Road to Responsibility (RTR; http://roadtoresponsibility.org), one of the region’s largest and most successful nonprofit organizations supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, was the recent recipient of a check in the amount of $2,361from Good Deeds in Pembroke.

    Good Deeds, which sprung from parent company Dirty Deeds and House Clean Outs, is a recycled goods shopping experience that lives up to its motto “good for your soul and good for our community.” The Dirty Deeds crew clean out attics, basements, garages and entire houses, resulting in large quantities of good, usable items, all of which are brought into the Good Deeds store and sold at competitive prices. A portion of profits from the sales are given to local charities each quarter, in addition to donations collected throughout each quarterly campaign.

    “We at Dirty Deeds/Good Deeds are overwhelmed by the support we are getting from our customers all over the South Shore,” said Larry DeRoche, president of Dirty Deeds. “It’s important to them to be able to have a chance to have their once cherished items be used again by other families. Our ‘Pay it Forward’ program and the idea of recycling household goods makes us very happy and proud.

    “It’s really impressive what RTR has done over the year and we wish them the same success in the future,” DeRoche added.

    “To say we are grateful to Good Deeds for this considerate contribution is an understatement,” Christopher White, Ed.D., CEO of Road to Responsibility.  “We value our partnership with Good Deeds and its outstanding staff and applaud its mission to recycle for the greater good.”
