Ben’s Bells Project – Lerner & Rowe Gives Back Grant Recipient

Ben’s Bells Project

Lerner and Rowe Gives Back presented a $5,000 check to the Ben’s Bells Project, a 2023 grant recipient of our foundation. 

Ben’s Bells will use these grant funds to cover the costs of updates to their Kindness Van. Transportation provided by the van is instrumental in helping the organization install inspirational murals, raise needed funds, and bring programming to the community.

For example, the Kindness Van will be used to drive merchandise for Shop Kind retail events, like the Street Fair, Made in Tucson, and The Festival of Books. These events generate over half of the organization’s overall revenue annually.

Reliable transportation provided by the new van will also make it possible for the organization to drive to local schools to implement the many benefits of its Kindness Campus and Murals programs. Each program focuses on reducing bullying, coping with the struggles of poverty, and increasing attendance at hundreds of local schools.
