Caps Given Out Since 2006 »
Where They Go
Our care caps go to the American Cancer Society (Mid-South) and chemotherapy clinics. A few go to individuals that we know or hear about, but, by and large, we produce, package and ship coast-to-coast to U.S. cancer clinics. By 2011, we were shipping 800-1,000 each month!
These clinics are regular recipients:: M.D. Anderson (Houston and Orlando), St. Jude Children’s (Memphis), Wilford Hall Air Force Med Center (San Antonio), St. Vincent (Little Rock), Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute (Little Rock), Christus Health and Willis-Knighton (Shreveport), Mayo Clinics (Rochester/Jacksonville), Vanderbilt-Ingram (Nashville), the university medical centers at Florida, Iowa, Michigan and Washington universities, Huntsman (Salt Lake City) Baptist Health (Little Rock and Heber Springs), Ozark Health (Clinton), Desoto Regional (Shreveport-South), Ronald McDonald Houses (Houston/Memphis) and Cincinnati Children's. Periodically, we ship to other clinics around the nation and the Veteran’s Administration.
We are set up as teams and in a "continuous production line". One team may begin the process and another may finish it. Our group effort works best for us. As a result, we supply a quality-controlled garment, separately bagged for medical centers, packed in bulk and shipped on an agreed-upon schedule. This is "The Care Cap Way". We do it with an energy that is alive and filled with love.
SPECIAL NOTE: The cancer center at UMichigan supports the making of its own care caps. Its purchasing department contacted our wholesaler, applied the cost of fabrics for their caps to their "credit card". We conducted a special sew-in just for them and completed a year's supply of their caps. Why not you???
ANOTHER SPECIAL NOTE: The Winthrop Rockefeller Caner Institute at Little Rock has its own monthly sew-in team. Under Mary's direction, they sew all their garments (and even give us any surplus). Why not you? See our video to learn how to establish your own. Call or write Mary for advice.
