LOGAN, W.Va. — BB&T banks of West Virginia have been reaching out to their communities over the last several years in trying to support the people that are most in need. This project is called the “Lighthouse” which helps to shine some brightness on Logan and surrounding neighborhoods.
This year BB&T of Logan awarded over $1,200 worth of food to the Nighbert Memorial United Methodist Church’s food pantry. Kathryn Brooks, VP Financial Center Leader in Gilbert/Logan, W.Va., and Pamela Bradley, Branch Banker Team Leader II in Logan, along with their staff Angela Vannatter, Jackie Cornes, Penni Johnson, Ashley Elkins and Mychaila Neece purchased, delivered and stocked over $1,200 worth of food. There were canned goods, cereals, snacks, hot dogs, bologna, soups, crackers, mac n cheese, instant mash potatoes, gravies, and much more.
Every third Monday of the month, Nighbert Memorial UMC hosts a food pantry from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Nighbert Memorial had a mural painted on their Food and Soup Kitchen wall of Christ feeding the 5,000 and their slogan is “Who Will Feed the 5000, WE WILL”.
The church serves every month approximately 100 families and in May there was a lot more food to go around thanks to BB&T.
“We were thankful for the ‘love donation’ from BB&T and that is how God works,” said Pastor Tom Beckette, “God supplies our needs when sometimes we don’t know when or where the next can of food will come from.”
