Press Release

The week of June 11, 2018 Fluvanna Meals on Wheels was honored to be the recipient of BB&T’s Lighthouse Project. Since the Lighthouse Project began in 2009, BB&T has provided over 500,000 volunteer hours and positively impacted the lives of over 15 million people. BB&T provided the corporate financial support to purchase enough non-perishable food for our weekend meal program to feed our clients for two weekends. Presently Fluvanna Meals on Wheels is providing non-perishable meals to almost 50 clients per week. The weekend meals program with Fluvanna Meals on Wheels was started over 2 years ago through a partnership with Palmyra & Cunningham United Methodist Churches and has make a tremendous difference in the lives of our clients.

Along with the non-perishable food donation, BB&T employees from the Pantops and Court Square branches in Charlottesville teamed up to volunteer with packing and delivering meals each day during the week.   Our BB&T team members for the week learned the how meaningful it is to change lives, one meal at a time.

Thank you, BB&T Pantops and Court Square branches!
