Where They Go

MORE THAN JUST A CHARITY

Our care caps go to the 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 2017, we ship 800-1,200 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), Willis-Knighton (Shreveport), Mayo Clinic (Jacksonville), Vanderbilt-Ingram (Nashville), Gilda's House (Nashville) the university medical centers at Little Rock, Florida, Iowa, Michigan and Washington universities, Huntsman (Salt Lake City), CARTI (Little Rock), Conway Regional and Ozark Health (Arkansas) and the Seattle Consortium. As we have availability, 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 Winthrop Rockefeller Cacner 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) at the UAMS Family Home. The UAMS Cancer Auxiliary there provided a wonderful 6X12 cargo trailer in 2016 for our use (Ebenezer II). 

"Feedback keeps coming in by card, letter and email.  This is from the University of Washington Medical Center thanking you all:  "Our summer teen volunteers have had some wonderful interactions...while taking a basket full of your scarves...to help brighten their (oncology patients) day."PLEASE REMEMBER:  OUR TEAMS TAKE OUR ANNUAL FALL HOLIDAY DURING THE MONTH OF OCTOBER.  WE DO NOT MAKE OR SHIP CAPS AGAIN UNTIL NOVEMBER."
