Gardner-White Donates Furniture for Lighthouse’s New Affordable House Project in Oak Park

Community space in Coolidge Place housing project furnished by Gardner-White

At a time when many lower-income working families are struggling due to COVID-19, Gardner-White teamed up with Lighthouse to give dozens of local families a more comfortable place to call home. In the midst of the pandemic, Lighthouse recently opened Coolidge Place, a brand new, 15-million-dollar complex in Oak Park, built to address the critical need for affordable housing in Oakland County. The complex is now fully occupied.

Gardner-White donated and delivered furniture to complete the community building and public spaces. The community building will provide a safe place for children to study after school, yoga classes, financial literacy and health programs, and other opportunities.

We are proud to be partners with Lighthouse on this project and excited we once again got to work with the brilliant people at Humble Design.

In the Press:

In a matter of hours, crews with Gardner-White Furniture moved $21,000 worth of donated furniture into the center at Coolidge Place on Coolidge just north of Eight Mile. What was once a large, open space with a kitchenette now includes two long dining tables, a chic seating area, multiple pub tables for people to spread out and a homework and play area for kids.
