Blog > Grand Opening of Tuscan Market to benefit The Chase Home


On Monday, July 1, Tuscan Market will open in downtown Portsmouth with 10% of the day’s proceeds to benefit The Chase Home.

Founded in 1877, The Chase Home serves more than 140 at-risk youth annually statewide through prevention, early intervention, residential and community-based programs. Some youth are served in the community while others live at The Chase Home.

Tuscan Market will also host a special lunch for youth who live at The Chase Home, an opportunity that staff at the nonprofit agency said will have “a big impact on the kids.”

“Anytime we can provide the kids with a community-based experience, it makes them feel good and better about themselves,” said Meme Wheeler, executive director at The Chase Home. “We are so thankful for this opportunity.”

This opportunity for The Chase Home builds off an existing relationship with Tuscan Brands. In addition to hosting fundraising events for The Chase Home, Tuscan Kitchen in Portsmouth has made numerous in-kind donations as well as prepared meals on-site for youth residents.

Joe Faro is founder and CEO of Tuscan Brands.

“We are thankful for Joe’s support of not just The Chase Home, but other nonprofits in the area,” added Wheeler.

Tuscan Market in downtown Portsmouth will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday to Thursday and 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
