NewLife Moves from Adams Street Warehouse to Walpole Warehouse

January 29, 2014

NewLife Home Refurnishing, a new non-profit organization which accepts donations of gently used furniture and household items for individuals and families in need, has recently moved from Adams Street in Medfield to a new warehouse space, 102 Elm Street (Route 27), in Walpole. “We are truly thrilled with our new location in Walpole,” said Ron Yates, NewLife’s president. “With this large warehouse we can better fulfill the mission of NewLife: to help individuals and families in transition. Specifically, those coming out of homelessness, those escaping domestic abuse, victims of fires or floods, veterans and recent refugees. NewLife provides them with the opportunity to ‘shop’ for themselves. Now that they have access to this new large warehouse, NewLife’s dedicated volunteers are anxious to build up the inventory of furniture and household goods in order to serve the ever-growing list of clients in need. Clients are referred through social service agencies or clergy members. NewLife is grateful for any donations of furniture and household items in good condition – they especially need mattresses, bedding, coffee tables, end tables and lamps. Those interested in donating, and those interested in volunteering, are encouraged to reference the NewLife web site, www.NewLifeHR.org to see the list of items we need most and to see how to get involved. “People have been so generous and wonderful,” said Doug Marshall, Treasurer. “We have a wonderful committee of folks that immediately stepped up to the plate to help us make this dream a reality. Furthermore, donors have come out in droves donating their gently used household items. We were astounded when we outgrew our Medfield warehouse in just three months! I have to say, we live in a very generous and giving area.” “If you’re interested in volunteering, please check out our web site. There are a variety of ways in which people can help, but most importantly, please help us get the word out that we are here, taking donations and helping those in need.” The new warehouse location is at 102 Elm Street (Route 27) in Walpole. “We are located in the mill building, on the right, just after the bridge as you enter Walpole from Medfield,” said Ron. “We are open from 9-11 AM on Saturdays. If you need to schedule a pick up of large items or a garage-full of items, for example, there is a wonderful, dedicated group of volunteers that can be scheduled to help you with that.” Please visit the website, www.NewLifeHR.org, for information on applying for assistance, donating and volunteering. Questions can be emailed to info@NewLifeHR.org or directed to 774-316-6395. The mission of NewLife Home Refurnishing is to help individuals and families in transition from the Metro-West and Greater Boston area. It is the belief of those involved that the opportunity to “shop” from the warehouse of gently used furnishing and household items offers dignity and affirmation to those who have been marginalized.
