BB&T-Oswald Trippe and Company employees participated and contributed in Lighthouse Project, a company-wide community service program, to support Lifeline Family Center.

BB&T-OTC team members donated $3,000 to fund the in-house curriculum for 12 girls for one year to cover the cost of materials for classes including preparation for parenting, parenting, budgeting, cooking, sewing and art, seven habits of highly successful teens, twelve-step recovery and time management.

The common area, where the girls enjoy movies once a week, was fitted with a television, throw blankets and couch pillows, purchased by BB&T-OTC, and on June 15 they were treated to pizza, drinks, popcorn and candy. Goodie bags were also given to each girl with nail polish, manicure/pedicure kits, shampoo, conditioner, sippy cups, baby bath, shampoo and more.

BB&T-Oswald Trippe and Company employees take part in BB&T’s annual Lighthouse Project. Teams select a nonprofit agency project to assist and complete during May and June to make the communities served better places to live by lending a helping hand to those in need of hope and encouragement. During the first three years of the Lighthouse Project, BB&T employees rolled up their sleeves and donated more than 150,000 volunteer hours to local charities and helped improve the lives of more than 5 million people in 25 states.
