Greensboro, NC, July 27, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- BB&T supported and funded Combat Female Veteran Families United’s Cloth Closet Project in June 2019. CFVF United teamed up with volunteers from BB&T to provide slightly used business attire for women veterans transitioning into the workforce that reside in Guilford County. Supplies were provided by BB&T. This is a joint effort to empower our local women veterans and support them in their efforts to seek gainful employment. Business attire can be an issue for our veteran women in need. Providing these clothes provides hope for these women warriors.
The project is already underway and you can now contact CFVF United, if you know a woman veteran in need of these services.
The BB&T volunteers are taking part in the company’s 11th annual Lighthouse Project. The teams have each selected a project to assist a nonprofit agency to complete between April and June to make a positive impact on the lives of people in need. BB&T hopes their efforts encourage others in the community to volunteer their time and support organizations such as CFVF United.
Since the inception of the BB&T Lighthouse Project in 2009, BB&T associates have completed more than 11,000 community service projects, donated more than 640,000 hours in volunteer service and touched the lives of more than 16.5 million people. Associates overwhelmingly voted to bring back the initiative this year. For more information about the Lighthouse Project, go to BBT.com/BBT/LighthouseProject/.

CFVF United is physically located here in Greensboro, North Carolina. As such, we are the first and only all-female veteran organization located in Guilford County. Being founded and chiefly-operated by Combat Female Veterans, representing all military branches, we have a unique understanding of the specific trials faced by Combat Female Veterans as they transition home, and we are uniquely positioned to serve and support this population – our sisters in arms.

Vision: CFVF United seeks to engage Combat Female Veterans and their families, as well as deployed combat females preparing for their returns to the civilian world. With focus on transition, economic, and advocacy, CFVF United acts as a conduit between these military heroes and the vital resources they need to ensure long, healthy, and fulfilling lives after war.
