Burke County BB&T helps prepare local students

Some of the 150 readiness kits the team at BB&T assembled.

Each year, BB&T has a lighthouse project in which the Morganton team works to enhance the quality of life for residents of our community. 

This year, a group of five staffers worked 10 hours shopping for items and preparing 150 readiness boxes for the local American Red Cross. These kits will be given to students in the area hit by the January tornado.  

“Tragedy happens so fast that we want to emphasize the importance of being prepared,” said Wanda Rose, VP , Agency Manager with BB&T. “We wanted to work with American Red Cross because of the great work they do in Burke County and we’re proud to team up with them and help in any way we can.”
