For the fourth consecutive year, BB&T associates rolled up their sleeves to help thousands. The BB&T Lighthouse Project, a company-wide community service effort held in May and June, gives our associates the opportunity to live out the BB&T mission to make the communities we serve better places to live.
Collectively, our associates have donated more than 200,000 hours to local charities, participated in more than 4,400 community service projects and touched the lives of more than 6 million people in 25 states.
Our associates don't just lend a helping hand to those in need, they offer hope and encouragement during times of economic instability and insecurity.
"In each of the past three years, our associates have shown that in times of economic uncertainty our dedication to our clients and communities is unwaivering. 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."
