What are people saying?

[this person] has gone out of her way and her job title to help me with things I needed for the customer.

…she is the true heartbeat of IPA and I think we are all incredibly lucky to have her here.

St. Jude's Fundraiser

with Amanda Dunavant


40 years ago, St. Jude helped my family with my cousin Blake Hutton and his battle with Leukemia. While I never got a chance to meet Blake, I've heard lots of stories about his big personality despite his circumstances.
I've been growing my hair for the last couple of years to donate to the Hair We Share program. In addition to my hair donation, I want to take this opportunity to raise funds for St. Jude. 
Please join me in donating to St. Jude in memory of Blake and all of the other children and their families fighting their battle against cancer.

Deadline February 8th, 2020
