BB&T Lighthouse Project Helps Marion County Community Center

FAIRMONT -

The 612 Madison Avenue Cooperation building in Fairmont has been closed for some time, but it's getting closer to re-opening.

BB&T's Lighthouse project is helping the youth community center cleanup the facility.

Employees from Marion County BB&T banks cleaned around the building's outside Saturday.

Cutting grass, adding new plants and weed control were a small part of the project that the bank hopes goes far toward helping the community.

"The lighthouse is kind of a beacon of light, that's BB&T's symbol, so what we want to be a beacon of light in the community and how can we give back. Marion County BB&T always tries to pick a project that will impact the community the most," said Brandi Tennant of BB&T Bank.

612 MAC has been working on remodeling the facility in hopes to reopen in time for the school year to begin.

In July, it will hold a Fish Fry to help raise more funds.
