BB&T BANK ASSOCIATES RENOVATE OUR WELCOME CENTER
MACOA’s Welcome Center received a facelift for a total of $5,000 in improvements, thanks to the hands-on efforts of more than a dozen BB&T associates. BB&T Lighthouse Projects are conducted each spring across the bank’s entire service area in order to provide corporate financial support to local charities while associates roll up their sleeves and go to work. MACOA was selected for a Lighthouse Project in the Montgomery market. “We give every associate eight hours of paid leave to work on a Lighthouse Project,” said Guy Davis, BB&T Market President. “We probably had 15 associates work on the MACOA project for four or five hours each,” Davis said. The hard-working team’s visit
produced visible results:
-Painted the Welcome Center and Library
-Added handrails in the Welcome Center
-Printed and framed photos
-Provided new shelves and furniture for the Library
-Replaced lighting in the Welcome Center and Library
-Installed new light fixture in Welcome Center
-Installed new multimedia Smart TV at entranceway
-Added new runner in hallway
-Replaced the door in Welcome Center
For Davis, MACOA was an especially good choice for the time and attention. “We think the mission of
MACOA lines up with the mission of BB&T which is to make our communities a better place to live,”
he said. Thank you, BB&T!
