[MUSIC PLAYING] Hello. Welcome to One Heart for Women and Children. We're here right now in College Park, which is in Orlando, Florida. One Heart has been in existence for 6 and 1/2 years. We feed, clothe, and mentor families. We've got about 3,000 people that will walk through our door each month that are needing services. We have probably 50 hours a month of volunteerism from employees from the bank.

The Lighthouse Project was an amazing opportunity for us. We had about 40 people that worked at the local BB&T Banks. They painted, they put shelves together, we did a couple of collages, and they hung clothes with us. They did really anything that was needed, which was amazing because really what that part of that story for me was is they were willing to go above and beyond. I love the relationship with BB&T Bank and One Heart for Women and Children because we're like-minded.

One Heart for Women and Children are so grateful not only for the project, but for the opportunity to have those relationships that they just keep giving. And when I say keep giving, it's not always about giving money, but giving that gift of time because the gift of time is so priceless.
