GL Homes donated furniture from its Boca Bridges sales office and design center to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Palm Beach County. The $47,000 furniture donation included lighting fixtures, window treatments, décor, patio furniture, chairs, desks, a refrigerator and a water fountain. On hand to help with the move were GL Homes and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Palm Beach County.
“Donating furniture to Habitat for Humanity keeps quality products out of landfills and generates much-needed revenue when it’s sold at Habitat’s ReStores. That revenue goes directly to build new, affordable homes for deserving families. Habitat builds homes, communities and hope — quite literally — from the ground up,” emphasized GL Homes Senior Director of Community Relations Sarah Alsofrom.
