Members of BB&T's Lighthouse Project, now in its eighth year, recently volunteered at the Greater Richmond ARC's ARCpark, a 2.4 acre handicap-accessible park for all ages and abilities at 3600 Saunders Avenue that opened last year. Their all-hands-on-deck effort included light landscaping such as spreading mulch.
"We want every one of our associates physically working in their communities to make a tangible difference in people's lives, ” said BB& T Chairman and CEO Kelly King.
In addition, BB& T volunteers helped at ARC's recent Ladybug fundraiser, purchased recreational equipment and arts & crafts supplies for ARC’s Camp Baker summer camp program, and are hosting a luncheon in June for ARC Employment Services participants.
