The Love Pantry project has expanded!

This dedication was representative of the 13 schools that BB&T has financially supported in cooperation with the Foundation for Orange County Public Schools. Because of the support from our community, the Love Pantry is now removing hunger as a barrier to learning in 53 Orange County Public Schools.
