Ingram Content Group Hosts Bake Sale for Mercy Ministries

Ingram Content Group, a Nashville based worldwide distributor of books and digital products, has a team of employees who chose to make a difference this holiday season. After members of Ingram’s Client Services team were given a tour of Mercy Ministries in Nashville to prepare for a marketing project, the team was so impressed by what they saw, they were determined to help.

Ingram’s Client Services Director, Lisa Button, had this to say about their visit:

“The thing that struck us most is that there are many group homes and support facilities in the city; however, Mercy is unique in that it seeks to do more than just help girls with one issue. Mercy Ministries strives to help girls with a wide range of issues find their way to a better life for the long term. When we returned to our office, Account Executive, Tanisha Wilson and I immediately started brainstorming ways to help the girls.”

Lisa organized a small team that included Danielle Holmes, Tiffany Lytle, Tanisha Wilson, and Barbie Patton, and they decided to host a bake sale to raise money for the residents in the Nashville home. The team posted flyers, decorated a bulletin board at the IMG offices and got the word out to all Ingram associates. They auctioned cakes and pies, and sold brownies, chess pie, chocolate and peanut butter fudge and coconut chocolate bars! Ingram employees also donated purses, soap, lotions and other useful items.

We are so grateful to Ingram for choosing to help Mercy Ministries and the young women we serve. Their generosity is a perfect example of how anyone can get involved and make a huge impact.
