Alternatives for Girls gets furniture upgrades thanks to Comerica, originally uploaded by FatherDalton.
Comerica Bank recently presented Detroit-based Alternatives For Girls with a truckload of donated office chairs to help the nonprofit provide quality seating for clients and staff members. The furniture donation is part of an effort to redistribute office furniture from Comerica’s One Detroit Center location to deserving nonprofits in metro Detroit as the bank completes its move to its new Michigan headquarters at Comerica Bank Center, 411 W. Lafayette in Detroit.
