Caring Chronicles: BB&T Lighthouse Project
BB&T Lighthouse Project
BB&T provided resources and employee volunteers to repaint the walls; and install new sofa chairs, couches, tables, shelving, wall decorations, and rugs in the community room at our Eastern Avenue Apartments.
Each year, BB&T associates work with nonprofits to identify and fulfill community service projects that enhance the quality of life for those in need through what is known as the BB&T Lighthouse Project. As part of this initiative, BB&T transformed the community room at our Eastern Avenue Apartments in Seat Pleasant, MD into a comfortable and brightly colored space that all of our low-income residents can now enjoy.
Our Eastern Avenue Apartments is a permanent supportive housing program that provides 88 units of housing, case management and other supportive services to low-income individuals and families. The community room has been a great space for our residents and their families to recreate. In June 2019, BB&T finished repainting the community room walls and installing new sofa chairs, couches, tables, shelving, wall decorations, and rugs. They also remulched the playground. We are so grateful for BB&T’s support in making our Eastern Avenue Apartments a more comfortable place to live and thrive.
