Sherwood Forest Light The Way

Our historic Detroit neighborhood is in need of new streetlights!

We have the opportunity to install lights and poles that reflect the age and character of our particular neighborhood but we need to raise enough money to cover the cost differential of what the City would typically provide. 

Will you help us "Light the Way" in Sherwood Forest and help our neighborhood obtain just under 100 elegant lights that will line our streets for decades to come? 

As our city moves forward, your contribution will help assure a strong future for a Detroit neighborhood that has been, and
continues to be, a beloved home to so many.

Thank you! 

Everyone who contributes will be invited to a celebration once the lights are installed.
