Pay It Forward Program Continues in 2014
Bell State Bank & Trust and Bell Mortgage employees are again excited to have the opportunity to Pay It Forward in 2014 by giving back to the communities we serve. Each year since 2008, every full-time employee has received $1,000 and every part-time employee $500 to Pay It Forward as they see fit to those in need. In what has become a year-round tradition, our employees carefully consider their Pay It Forward gifts, giving more than $4.7 million to date to people in need and causes we care about.
“Pay It Forward: Community Connect”
This past year, we made an addition to Pay It Forward that doubled its life-changing impact. Through our “Pay It Forward: Community Connect” component, each employee selected a customer, vendor or community member who themselves had the chance to Pay It Forward to an individual, family or organization in need. The Community Connect program is continuing again this year.
Our customers, vendors and friends are the reason we grow and succeed. Giving these individuals the opportunity to Pay It Forward as they choose in their communities has resulted in still more inspirational stories of giving. We are so happy to share this program, because we know these gifts change the lives not only of those who receive them, but of the givers. Each time we Pay It Forward, we are blessed many times over.
