[MUSIC PLAYING] The BB&T Lighthouse Project is an annual project providing BB&T associates with an opportunity to make a difference and bring fun to their communities. When we heard about Cradles to Crayons, the emphasis on children's happiness immediately drew us in. One in five children in southeastern Pennsylvania lives in poverty. Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth to age 12 living in low income and homeless situations with essential items they need to thrive at home, at school, and at play.

Cradle to Crayons collect items from school supplies, toys, strollers, to clothing and diapers. BB&T has donated essential items to the cause, and volunteers have helped with a wide array of childhood essentials, including one week clothing packs and the cleaning and fixing of donated toys. Once specific story that touched our hearts was about two sisters who had missed school on different days.

When asked by the teacher about not attending school, they told her they only had one coat to share. We feel very fortunate to be a part of helping these children smile, succeed, and grow, both now and in the future.
