Saying that there's no better time of year to help out others, Norfolk County Register of Deeds William P. O'Donnell says that his agency will continue its collections of household items for a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people establish a new home.
The charity, known as newlife Home Refurnishing located in Walpole, opened its warehouse doors in November of 2013, providing such free household items to its clients as furniture, linens, mattresses, dishes, pots and pans and more. "The agency serves a wide variety of people including those affected by disasters (such as fires and floods), as well as veterans and others who are trying to get back on their feet," noted O'Donnell.
In their nearly 3 years of operation, newlife Home Refurnishing has served more than 740 households, 1300 individuals and nearly 100 veterans. Furthermore, approximately 90 social agencies have sent clients to the organization. Just recently the organization got involved in an initiative dealing with chronic homelessness with the City of Boston.
"We are truly excited to be involved," said Register O'Donnell, "but the Registry, because of space limitations can only collect certain types of new and gently used household items (no furniture), but we would love to receive donations such as linens, sheets, comforters and blankets (no king size). Other items they are looking for include pots, pans, kitchen and cooking utensils (no dishes), silverware, towels and face cloths, (no beach towels)," noted O'Donnell.
Those interested in making a donation, can call Alicia Gardner at 781-461-6104 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Registry requests that if you are looking for a receipt, please bring a list of the items that you are donating. You can also directly donate to newlife Home Refurnishing. They are located at 102 Elm Street, Walpole. Donations are accepted on Saturday mornings between the hours of 9:00-11:00 or by appointment.
