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. “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,” Key said.
Bids for construction of the facility will sought for a second time later this year. Bids came in much higher than expected during the first bid cycle. That has prompted campaign organization to try and raise an additional $49,000 to begin the project.
