Press Release: 5/19/22
Mid-Cape Home Centers, a division of US LBM, is excited to announce the addition of two newly wrapped Trucks-for-a-Cause to their ever growing ‘Fleet of Hope.’ Joining the ranks are a truck wrapped for Big Brothers Big Sisters and one for Mental Health Awareness, which hit the streets just in time for Mental Health Awareness Month.
Mid-Cape recognizes the need for promoting the well-being, mental and social health of our local children. That is why every year they partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters, a local chapter of a nationwide organization dedicated to fostering one-on-one mentoring relationships, through both annual and event sponsorships. Some of Mid-Cape’s team members are also directly involved in the program as “big brothers and big sisters” to local youth. Extending additional support, Mid-Cape wrapped a Truck-for-a-Cause in honor of Big Brothers Big Sisters and their work to enrich the lives of local children and ensure they are thriving, offering hope for the upcoming generation.
Mid-Cape also wants to help offer hope for those who suffer from depression, anxiety and the toll trauma takes on the mind. Mental health is health. Each year, about 1 in 4 American adults struggles with a diagnosable mental health disorder, according to John Hopkins Medicine. Crystal Pieschel, Director of Marketing at Mid-Cape shares “Our team takes this reality very seriously. After a team vote to collectively select the next big cause for the company to get behind and fundraise on behalf of in 2022, we have chosen to link arms with B Free Wellness Inc., a local organization transforming people’s lives by providing low-to-no cost services for those whose lives have been affected by trauma, addiction, and oppression.”
Keep an eye out for Mid-Cape’s newly wrapped Truck-for-A-Cause, the latest addition to their ‘Fleet of Hope,’ highlighting that mental health is as significant as physical health.
“These issues not only affect members of our community, but first responders as well, who selflessly protect and serve around the clock” continues Pieschel. According to the CDC, each year more firefighters and police officers are estimated to die by suicide than in the line of duty. Support for them in their battle against trauma, PTSD, depression, stress, and more is crucial for the betterment of the local community. “If they are healthy, our community will be healthier.”
