BB&T Partners with Chatham Literacy to Tackle Computer Literacy

BB&T’s Lana Bradley works with a small group

BB&T in Pittsboro chose Chatham Literacy for its 2014 Lighthouse Project, the bank’s annual effort to make a positive difference in the communities it serves. BB&T provided $1,000 for tutoring supplies and its staff volunteered to teach a computer and internet skills workshop for Chatham Literacy’s adult learners.

BB&T also generously agreed to include clients from Chatham Literacy’s service partner, Circles Chatham, in a second workshop. Altogether, 34 people participated in the classes, which Tiffany Steinbrunner, Lana Bradley, Pamela Kovach, Brandy Everwine, Penny Stallings, and Courtney Thomas made possible. Tiffany, the branch’s market leader, said the project was a great opportunity for the BB&T staff. “It was our pleasure to work with an amazing organization and to help others in our community achieve a lifelong goal,” she said.

This project was very successful in strengthening Chatham Literacy’s integration of computing, a life skill, into its learning programs.
