BB&T Presents Gift to Senior Care Center

BRUNSWICK, Georgia: Sept. 5, 2008 – BB&T officials from the new Brunswick Financial Center presented the Southeast Georgia Health System Foundation with a $25,000 gift in support of the Health System’s new Senior Care Center. The official presentation was made during the Foundation’s board meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 3.

According to Bradford Brown, senior commercial lender, the gift will be presented to the Foundation in $5,000 increments over the next five years. “The main reason we selected the Senior Care Center for this gift is that we need this type of service in our community,” Brown says. “Many of us have parents and/or grandparents who are using or will soon need these types of services and this really hits close to home.”

As a not-for-profit health care organization that is not supported by tax dollars, 100% of the Health System’s charitable financial assistance is used for patient care and is not diverted to overhead or operational costs, says Katherine Thurber, the Foundation’s director of development. “We are able to enhance the activities and programs for our residents through the generosity of our donors, such as BB& T,” Thurber says. “This gift will enable us to further our mission of supporting the health care needs of the community.”
