The Waterford at Columbia is the recipient of BB&T's Lighthouse Community Outreach Project

The backyard and patio area looks fantastic with new flowers, new ceiling fans, new hanging baskets and a patio that shines thanks to power-washing. On the inside, several closets were cleaned out and reorganized, and that was an enormous job, and it was very much appreciated. All of the bulletin boards were replaced and refreshed, and the inside looks better than ever, too. We are so grateful for the generosity and tireless efforts of this marvelous group of volunteers.
