Making a house a home takes work. Filling family rooms and mantles with photos of friends and family, decorations and most importantly – furniture, breathes life into the household and the family who live there. Throughout the moving process, real estate agents often encounter buyers and sellers who find themselves with excess furniture. Whether they are downsizing to a smaller home or undertaking an interior design overhaul, excess chairs, sofas and the like can pose a logistical challenge. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution- organizations like NewLife Home Refurnishing gladly accept gently-used furniture that can be distributed to a family in need.

NewLife Home Refurnishing, which is based in Medfield, MA with a furniture collection site in Walpole, MA, has partnered with the Commonwealth team for many years with agents from Medfield volunteering to sort through collected items. The not-for-profit organization provides furniture to people who have fallen on tough economic times, victims of fire or flood, veterans, refugees, and many more in need. The organization also accepts a wide range of donations from mattresses to desks to cooking utensils. For those who don’t have furniture to donate, but would still like to help, NewLife accepts tax-deductible monetary donations.

Real Estate agents are in an ideal position to help non-profits like NewLife thrive. Clients who are looking to get rid of furniture throughout the home buying/selling process often welcome help in taking unwanted or unneeded furniture off their hands.
