IES wraps a bus for a nonprofit – and stuffs it with donations.
Despite their superhero powers, sometimes moms need a little help. In Nashville, the nonprofit Mother To Mother steps in to provide assistance to families in need by collecting and distributing basic items such as car seats, diapers, and clothing. The charity was recently gifted a much-needed vehicle by Randy Smith, chairman and co-founder of Smith Travel Research, which will allow the organization to expand its reach into more rural areas.
Large-format print shop IES volunteered to install a new vehicle wrap free of charge. The Nashville-based PSP printed graphics featuring the Mother To Mother logo and contact information using a Vutek HS 125 onto 3M IJ180Cv3-10 white vinyl. IES installers removed the old graphics from the bus and put on the fresh new prints.
In addition to donating the bus wrap, IES rallied employees, vendors, and neighboring businesses to fill the bus with approximately $7000 worth of baby care items that Mother To Mother can pass out to families throughout Tennessee. “The next step for us is to figure out how to keep this great relationship going with Mother To Mother,” says IES owner Adam Ingram. “We will stay in touch with them, learn what their needs are, and do everything we can to help them out, whether it be printing needs or hosting diaper drives.”
