Meet Julie Garrettson this week's Ben's Bells Bellee!

Julie Garrettson was nominated by William Clifford

Meet Julie Garrettson this week's Ben's Bells Bellee! Julie Garrettson was nominated by William Clifford for her selflessness and kindness. Every year, at around Christmas, Julie procures ingredients (from friends and neighbors) and cooks and assembles "bag lunches” for homeless throughout the Tucson community. These lunches include sandwiches, home-baked cookies and banana breads, tissues, toothpaste, etc. She began doing assembling these bags many years ago, quietly and on her own. Today, she (and her friends) spend days cooking and packaging. Then on or around Christmas each year she packs her car and delivers to homeless hotspots--and it's not the shelters, it's the parks, the underpasses. Julie truly is an exemplar of kindness and it is a joy to know her.  
 
If you know someone who spreads kindness within the Greater Tucson or Phoenix community, nominate them for a Ben's Bell! bensbells.org/kindness-education/weekly-belling
