BB&T Lighthouse Project Volunteers
On Tuesday, April 17, about 30 Branch Banking & Trust (BB&T) employees volunteered at the Food Bank’s New Bern Branch warehouse as part of their “Lighthouse Project” to enhance the quality of life for residents throughout our communities. The volunteers worked sorted and labeled over 7,500 pounds of canned products and Worked with Master Gardeners to prepare and plant the Food Bank’s Community Garden for summer harvest (including potatoes, tomatoes, corn, and watermelon!)

BB&T also donated $3,200 to the New Bern Food Bank, a portion of which will be applied toward the purchase of a water meter for the garden.
