About Us

We are pleased to announce Peg’s Presents, a giving foundation in the name of Margaret “Peg” Romano (who I was lucky enough to call my Mom). Peg adored children, welcoming over a dozen foster children into her home over the years. Besides children, she loved gift giving, so the idea of providing presents to children in need is the perfect way to honor her memory.

We’re honored to work with Dignity Housing of Philadelphia, whose mission is to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty that confronts low-income families and individuals in Philadelphia by providing safe, decent affordable housing, promoting self-sufficiency, and creating opportunities beyond expectations.

Many of the mothers at Dignity Housing are not able to give their children birthday and Christmas presents, and that’s where we come in. Peg’s Presents will be providing gifts to children in need to let kids enjoy being kids and bring some smiles to all — givers & receivers — along the way.
