How We Started
Ron Yates and Doug Marshall were instrumental in the startup and development of the Tri-Valley Chapter of South Shore’s Habitat for Humanity several years ago. Recognizing the need for “gently used” furniture from Habitat experiences as well as personal experiences, Ron and Doug researched the possibility of a furniture bank in their area. Under Ron and Doug’s leadership, New Life was introduced to the public on September 13, 2013, at Medfield Day. They bring many years of public and private company experience to the organization. Ron is the former CEO of a group of small manufacturing companies and Doug is a Market Executive for a large financial institution.
