BB&T makes commitment to Partnership to Build a Miracle


BB&T in Smithfield has committed to donate $10,000 to Partnership to Build a Miracle. BB&T has been supporting the Miracle League since their first season, and has supported many important projects and organizations in Johnston County.

Partnership to Build a Miracle is a collaborative effort between the Partnership for Children of Johnston County and the Miracle League of Johnston County to build an Inclusion Park and Miracle Field for children of all abilities in Smithfield, NC. It will be a park where children with special needs have an accessible play space to share with their friends, and give them the opportunity to make new ones.

Chris Key, the Campaign Chair for Partnership to Build a Miracle, accepted the donation, and added: “We are very excited to have BB&T be a part of this campaign. As we draw closer to construction, community leaders like Ernie and Zack are the kind of people who will make the difference.”

The Town of Smithfield will have to start the bidding process to begin construction once again. Bids came in higher than expected during the last cycle so PtBM is currently in the process of raising an additional $49,000 to begin the project.
