Water For People is an international nonprofit working across nine countries to bring safe water and sanitation to 4,000,000 people. They look to create long-lasting water and sanitation infrastructure and foster relationships with community members, governments, and business owners to accomplish that goal. Bell Engineering is proud to support Water For People‘s effort by again making a $1,000 donation to their cause. Kelly Gillespie, President of Bell Engineering, accepted a plaque recognizing our contribution for the year 2016. Bell has donated this money to the organization every year since 2011.
Additionally, Bell staff member Ron McMaine, Senior Vice President and Principal, also supports the organization through volunteer efforts. Mr. McMaine assists each year alongside other volunteers at the Water For People booth at the Kentucky-Tennessee Water Professionals Conference. During the conference, a silent auction of donated items takes place at the group’s booth to raise additional funds. This year these efforts raised an additional $2,400.
