Lighthouse Project community service effort still shines in a challenging year

March 2, 2021

In a year like no other, McGriff teammates kept the altruistic spirit of the Lighthouse Project alive in 2020.

The long-standing community service initiative included preapproved projects to safely support communities from the end of October through November. Projects to benefit nonprofits were completed individually or as a COVID-safe team – either virtually, remotely, or through outdoor efforts.

More than 3,000 McGriff teammates completed 93 projects over a two-month time period.

“In an incredibly tough environment, I’m so proud of our teammates for remaining resilient and committed to making a difference in the lives of those in need,” said McGriff Chief Executive Officer Rick Ulmer. “What a great example of living up to the Truist purpose of inspiring and building better lives and communities.”

The Lighthouse Project is a heritage BB&T now Truist tradition. Since 2009, teammates have completed more than 12,000 community service projects – providing more than 700,000 volunteer hours and impacting the lives of more than 18 million people.
