IBS Gives Back

IBS Supports Divine Glorious Ministries

Oliver Okoli, a former IBS employee, has dedicated his life to humanitarian work in Africa and South Asia. The Hope Center Orphanage focuses on feeding, sheltering and educating disadvantaged children in the rural town of Mehboob in Faisalabad, Pakistan. Oliver is also aiding the efforts of rebuilding infrastructure (and more specifically, the computer lab) at the Community Secondary School located in Mmaku in Eastern Nigeria. 

IBS is incredibly proud of Oliver and this work he's done for over a decade. IBS is happy to be a continued supporter of this work. Interested in lending a hand yourself? You can make a donation to Divine Glorious Ministries.

IBS Sponsors Hoosier Burn Camp

Hoosier Burn Camp is a nonprofit organization committed to providing life-changing experiences for young people who have suffered the physical and emotional trauma associated with a severe burn injury. Each year, they hold a week-long summer camp experience for burn survivors where they can be "just one of the kids" in a safe and supportive environment.

Since 2010, IBS has been a proud sponsor of Hoosier Burn Camp. Our VP of Marketing, Nancy Williams also works with HBC as a camp counselor and leader each year. To read more about her experiences as a volunteer, click here.

IBS would like to extend a huge thank you to the volunteers, donors, and camp directors who make this week possible each year. You can see the pure joy in the kids' faces and truly tell how much this camp means to them.

IBS donated two Chicago Cubs tickets and Lisa had a blast serving up chicken and pork chops to hungry attendees! All proceeds from the event went to scholarships for individuals with special needs.
