Celebrating six years of BB&T’s company-wide service effort, we continue to roll up our sleeves and make a positive difference. The BB&T Lighthouse Project, held each May and June, gives us the opportunity to put the BB&T mission into action, doing our part to improve the communities we serve.
It has been our privilege to offer service and corporate financial support to many overwhelmed and underfunded nonprofit organizations that continue to struggle in a challenging economic environment.
Together our associates have contributed more than 265,000 volunteer hours to local charities, participated in more than 5,500 community service projects and touched the lives of more than 8 million people.
"In each of the past five years, our associates have shown that in times of economic uncertainty, our dedication to our clients and communities is a guarantee. BB&T's hard-working associates share the desire to be the best, and that includes supporting their communities. I could not be more proud of them, the Lighthouse Project, and what both mean to our organization."
