Just Joel’s giving back to local domestic violence services

A local favorite continues to give back to the community.

Owner of Just Joel’s, Joel Watson, holds a pie donation every year. He normally doesn’t sell whole pies. Some proceeds from the sales are going to the Domestic Violence Services of Benton and Franklin counties.

“I know what it is like to start over, not have anything, not have anything for Christmas,” Watson said. “I’m going to get these kids a Playstation!”

Watson said his goal is to buy presents for the kids and stock the food pantry at the women’s shelter. He’s known for always giving back to the community whether it’s to school lunch debt or Chaplaincy Health Care.
