    SMPS CENTRAL PA DONATES $7,000.00 TO BELL SOCIALIZATION SERVICES

    The Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) Central Pennsylvania Chapter donated a check in the amount of $7,000.00 to Bell Socialization Services, Inc. (Bell), which will be designated toward their Adopt-a-Days fundraising campaign. An Adopt-a-Day donation covers operating costs at Bell’s Family Shelter, assuring a safe place to sleep, nutritious meals, and compassionate staff to help York County families experiencing homelessness. The funds came from a portion of the Chapter’s proceeds from their A/E/C Golfing “Fore” Business outing, which took place at Heritage Hills Golf Resort in York, PA on September 1, 2020.

    Bell began in 1966 as “The Bell Club,” a social gathering for people being discharged from local psychiatric hospitals into the greater York, PA community. As Bell began to enrich mental health services, programs were also added to assist individuals with intellectual disabilities, and in 1986, the agency added shelter services to meet the needs of York County’s homeless families. Today, about 2,500 people are served each year through dozens of programs offering housing and basic living supports.
    SMPS represents a dynamic network of more than 7,000 marketing and business development professionals from architectural, engineering, construction, and specialty consulting firms located throughout the United States and Canada. The Society and its chapters benefit from the support of 3,700+ design and building firms, encompassing 80% of the Engineering News–Record Top 500 Design Firms and Top 400 Contractors.
