Saturday, April 28th, 2017, homeless mothers and children in the Richmond, VA area received a much-needed lifeline: new plumbing for one of Home Again Richmond’s emergency shelters for families in crisis. Bell employees Paul Stiles, Steve Benulis, Jerry Betts, and Rob Wilderman performed the work, which involved installing new plumbing and new lavatories within the family communal bathrooms.
Bell has a long history of community service: Celebrating 50 years in business this year, since the company’s inception Bell employees have donated time, money, skill, and effort to organizations that help those less fortunate: the United Way; Run for the Sun (Race Against Melanoma); Team River Runner, an organization that helps wounded and disabled veterans heal through paddle sports; providing Christmas care baskets to families in need; Free to Breathe (Race Against Lung Cancer); and YMCA’s “Send A Kid To Camp” initiative, to name a few.
Community service that makes a difference in the lives of our people, customers and community is an essential part of The Bell Company culture. Projects like this give us the opportunity to share our company culture and celebrate our 50th anniversary in a way that honors our founders. Kudos to our Richmond team for representing Bell and living up to our commitment to serve the communities where we live and work!
On May 21, employees from Bell’s Rochester Office participated in the annual JP Morgan Chase Corporate 5K Run Challenge.
