BB&T Lighthouse Project blesses Salvation Army

Thank you for being one of our most loyal readers. Please consider supporting community journalism by subscribing to The Wilson Times.


During the past few weeks, the Salvation Army Social Services Department has had several visits from BB&T’s Lighthouse Project, whose volunteers provided items to help our clients and families in need.

Frederick Massimi, operations division fraud management, and Cathy Denton, assistant VP of mortgage lending, and their teams have given of their time and energy by purchasing and installing new metal shelving units for the food pantry plus restocking each shelf according to the product stored. They purchased a new deep-chest freezer and filled two freezers with meats, including beef and turkey burger, sausage, bacon, pork loins, chicken, sandwich meats and much more.

And, not only did they fill our shelves with nonperishable food items for breakfast, lunch and supper, they have provided personal hygiene items and baby diapers.

On behalf of the Salvation Army and particularly our clients, a huge thank you goes out to BB&T for showing their love and commitment to this community through the Lighthouse Project and “Doing the Most Good” in touching the lives of so many! God has truly blessed our pantry so that we can continue to be a blessing to our clients.
