Even small gifts change lives

Pay It Forward

Ben Franklin Hotdish Club

A Bell employee donated funds to two teachers at Ben Franklin Junior High because she was moved by a program they started. The teachers knew that not all of their students were getting enough food. Seeing how great the need was, the two formed the Hotdish Club. Twice a month, students who qualify get to bring home a meal to put in the oven so that their families can enjoy a hot meal. Students and community members get involved in preparing and packaging the food. It certainly is a warm way to give back as a community.
