Responding to our room item wish list for homeless veterans moving into Piquette Square, Bank of America generously donated 150 sets of dinner plates, glasses, silverware, pots and pans and other kitchen goods.
Last week, 40 Banking Center Directors from the bank’s northwest Detroit market packed the donations into kits ready for apartment use, including hand-signed notes to the tenants from the bank thanking them for their military service.
Piquette Square is a new $23 million, 150-unit apartment project near New Center that will provide long-term housing and care for homeless veterans. Southwest Housing Solutions developed the project and will own and manage it. This facility will open this June.
The Piquette Square Wish List seeks to provide all 150 units with bath towels, bed linens and other household goods.
Nina Rodriguez and Tosha Brown, members of Bank of America’s Local Market Delivery Team, took the lead in organizing the bank’s support for the Piquette Wish List.
“Bank of America is honored to be able to support veterans who have served our country and who have, unfortunately, faced hard times upon their return,” said Tosha Brown, Bank of America Assistant Vice President.
“The generosity and care shown by Bank of America to our veterans is truly remarkable and heartwarming,” said Kathy Gordon, director of Property Management at Southwest Housing.
