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 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 Clinics (Rochester/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), The American Cancer Society (Shreveport-Mid-South), 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 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) at the UAMS Family Home. The Cancer Auxiliary provided a wonderful 6X12 cargo trailer for our use (Ebenezer II).
