Gateway is honored to be the recipient of the BB&T Spirit Award which included a very generous $5,000 donation! The award and check was presented to Gateway by BB&T’s President of Alabama Operations, Mr. Donta Wilson, and its Birmingham Market President, Mr. Burton McDonald, along with several other local BB&T guests, including Ginger Black, Lighthouse Coordinator and Heidi Schoonover, Community Development Specialist.

Earlier this year, BB&T volunteers with funding from the Bank provided some decorative landscaping and planting at the campus earlier this year as well as the re-building of all campus outdoor benches. In addition, they provided 100 welcoming bags of personal hygiene items for new campus residents and foster children. So, as you can see, they have done a lot for Gateway and its clients. Thank you so much BB&T for all that you do for Gateway!
