This new effort sounds like a wonderful addition –
New Life Home Refurnishing, a new nonprofit furniture bank serving this area, is in desperate need of mattresses and box springs of any size in good condition (no stains, visible marks or tears), as well as bedding of any size. We have several people in a queue waiting to “shop” for furniture until we add some mattresses to our inventory. Most of our limited selection of mattresses went to several clients before Christmas.
New Life Home Refurnishing is a brand new non-profit organization that accepts tax-deductible donations* of “gently used” furniture and household items, warehouses them and then makes them available at no charge to those in need. We are located just over the Medfield line at 102 Elm Street (Route 27) in the brick mill building after the railroad bridge.
New Life helps individuals and families in transition: victims of fires or floods, those escaping domestic abuse, people coming out of homelessness, veterans of war and recent refugees. In order to qualify, clients need to provide a letter of referral from a social service agency or clergy member. Donors also benefit through this local opportunity to recycle furniture and household items they no longer need.
New Life Home Refurnishing moved to its new warehouse space on January 18. (We outgrew our donated space in Medfield after only three months!) Now we are anxious to build up our inventory of furniture in order to serve the growing list of clients in our queue. Although we will be grateful for any donations of furniture and household items in good condition, we especially need the things listed at the bottom of this page. See www.newlifehr.org if you have questions about what we accept. The warehouse will be open to receive donations from 9-11 AM on Saturdays. We will also pick up large items during that time frame. Please contact us at email@example.com or 774-316-6395.
Volunteers are needed for all facets of our operation, from 2.5 hours on a Saturday morning to a variety of behind the scenes tasks. Let us know of your interest by email or phone.
