From Susan, Barbara and Laura of New Life Furniture Bank –
MARCH TOWEL DRIVE FOR NEW LIFE FURNITURE BANK
A set of fresh towels makes the perfect gift. It is a thoughtful housewarming gift for a young person, a terrific shower gift for a future bride, and a much-needed gift for the new college student. It can also be an impulse purchase as a quick, affordable pick-me-up for a dull bathroom. New Life Furniture Bank knows that its clients, likewise, appreciate having a fresh and clean washcloth, hand towel and bath towel for every family member — the reason behind their March Towel Drive.
New or gently used bath towels, hand towels and/or washcloths (they don’t have to match, but no beach towels, please) would be greatly appreciated and may be dropped off at the United Church of Christ, Saint Edward’s Church, Park Street Books, Medfield Parks and Recreation, and Medfield High School. Towels, as well as other household donations, may also be dropped off any Saturday morning at the New Life Donation Center at 102 Elm Street Walpole between 9:00-11:30.
New Life provides high-quality, gently-used household essentials and furniture at no cost to its Metro West and Greater Boston clients through a referral process. For five years New Life has been helping individuals and families in transition and coming out of homelessness, including those escaping domestic abuse, victims of fires and floods, refugees and veterans.
In FY2018, New Life provided furniture and housewares for 547 households, which included approximately 1350 towel sets. The expectation is that 650 households will be served this year. New Life asks that you please help them meet the increased need by donating towels this March.
New Life Furniture Bank is a volunteer-based organization with a donation center in Walpole that is always in need of helping hands, household donations and financial donations. To learn more, please visit: newlifefb.org.
