NASHVILLE, Tenn. (December 23, 2015) -- Mother To Mother, Inc., Middle Tennessee’s non-profit organization dedicated to providing Tennessee families in need with essential equipment, clothing and products for their infants and young children, founded by Janie Busbee, is expanding its supply center chain into Clarksville this month. Currently, the non-profit has six supply centers in Middle Tennessee. To date, Mother To Mother has served over 43,000 children. Over 2.1 million items have been distributed since the organizations inception. To make a charitable donation, please log in here: Mother To Mother Donations here. Busbee founded the organization in 2004.
Founder Janie Busbee says, “As a mother, I truly understand the taxing monetary needs that need to be met in raising children. I started Mother To Mother to help provide those in our community that could use a little extra help. Reading the paper and seeing the stories, I knew I needed to help generate a means to an end for these families.
“Today, we are pleased to have many partners such as Nashville General Hospital at Meharry, Mercy Ministries, Monroe Carell, Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, Catholic Charities of Nashville and many others that we work with on a daily bases,” she continues.
Tennessee is ranked 45th in the nation for infant mortality. Additionally, none of the government’s “safety net” programs provide diapers, therefore leaving those in need with little to no resources to secure these essentials. Busbee’s mission is to deliver and collect these essentials on a daily basis. Organizations and individuals can do their part by holding “diaper drives,” baby showers, becoming a sponsor and by monetary donations.
By the numbers, Mother To Mother, Inc, has: provided:
* Over 1.2 million diapers * 1,255 cribs/Pack N Plays * Over 1400 car seats * Over 342,000 pieces of clothing
2016 is shaping up to be banner year for the non-profit as it continues its growth throughout the state. Without the help of the partners and corporations providing goods and services, along with regular donations of clothes and other items from children, churches, other organizations and more, none of this would be possible.
