Cap America (PPAI 111597) in Fredericktown, Missouri, recently donated more than 10,000 fleece caps to the Fredericktown United Methodist Church’s annual coat drive and the local Salvation Army. These caps will be given to people in need to help them stay warm during the bitter Missouri winters.

“Last year, the local Methodist church handed out over 400 coats to members of the community,” says Maria Weekley, Cap America’s community outreach specialist. “The Salvation Army distributes coats and other articles of clothing to their offices between here [Fredericktown] and St. Louis. They give the clothes to a variety of people, from homeless people they encounter to individuals that come in seeking assistance.”

President and Chief Operating Officer Mark Gammon adds, “We’re always happy to help out our local community. We’re fortunate to be in a position where we can give back to the community that supports us.”
