At Bell, we understand what community really means. It’s not just a geographical commonality, it’s recognizing the needs within the community and responding with a sense of duty in times of hardship and uncertainty. A dry 2018 Autumn & Winter kicked off a drought in the East Gippsland region putting many communities under pressure. Already struggling, these communities were further anguished at the end of 2019 by the horrific fire season which ravaged the parched land. Responding to the call of these distressed communities our offices got together to donate trailers and trucks full of hay to the drought and fire affected victims near Omeo in the hopes of providing some relief and easing the burden. It is with great pride our status in the local community makes it possible for us to stand beside and offer relief to communities in need.
