About Our Mission

We can’t begin to express the gratitude we have for the gift you gave us—the gift of a new life.

Our Story

Mission of Deeds began with the simple dream of one man: to provide basic home essentials to those in need.

Tony Triglione, our founder, was a successful businessman and resident of Winchester, Massachusetts, when he founded Mission of Deeds in 1993. Having grown up poor himself, he was haunted by images of children and their mothers sleeping on floors and eating on milk crates because they could not afford to buy basic items such as beds, tables, and chairs.

Determined to improve the quality of life for these families, Tony founded Mission of Deeds as a place where people could not only receive new beds and donated household essentials free of charge, but also be treated with kindness, respect, and compassion.

Today, with the help of our dedicated volunteers and the generous donations of the community, Mission of Deeds serves thousands of families and individuals throughout Middlesex and Essex counties. Our clients include the veterans, previously homeless, survivors of domestic abuse, refugees, the elderly, victims of fire or other tragedies, and those with disabilities. With Tony’s vision as our constant guide, we look forward to serving the community for years to come.
