BB&T closes its annual United Way Campaign with outstanding results

Columbia, S.C. (November 12, 2018) – Employees of BB&T, a long time investor in United Way of the Midlands, completed their 2018 United Way campaign raising nearly $96,000.

“BB&T and its employees continue to be an amazing partner for United Way and the entire community,” said United Way President & CEO Sara Fawcett. “We are grateful for their employees’ investment in our mission to improve the quality of life for everyone in the Midlands. BB&T has been an avid supporter of our mission to make sure children have the resources they need to be successful readers in order to prepare them for long-term success.”

BB&T’s employee campaign was led by Ryan Antley and Jess Powell.

“At BB&T, our commitment to helping others extends well beyond offering products and services,” said Mike Brenan, President, South Carolina Region at BB&T. “We often find the most fulfilling work we do is helping those who are struggling, and United Way is able to reach out and meet the needs of the community that most of us don’t see or think about day to day.”

Thanks to local partners like BB&T, United Way is leading the charge in improving quality of life in the Midlands by working to prevent homelessness, to provide affordable eye and dental care, and to prepare children to enter kindergarten ready to learn and graduate high school on time.
