Sew Can You

MORE THAN JUST A CHARITY

If you have clicked the other buttons on this site and seen/read of Care Cap Connections™, you already know that we are really not asking everyone to join us in sewing. There are a host of tasks—all very important to us. This means, when we seek partners, we hope they share our vision and our desire to give some part of ourselves to others.

We joke with our volunteers that we will double their pay if they do a good job. In truth, none of us are paid - no officers, no board members and no workers. And, we sell nothing.

We look to individuals, businesses, government agencies and others for help. Help with our operational expenses if you choose. Contribute to sustain our work and to expand elsewhere. We need direct public support in the form of direct involvement each month—in cutting, pinning, sewing, ironing, packaging and in various administrative and logistical ways—and we need it indirectly, too.  Some folks get a pattern and instruction on this site or from Mary and work remotely.  Good!

We always need help in obtaining fabric and linings. (We only use cotton, 45”, prints for shells and solids for the linings, soft to the touch.) We need sewing and office supplies and aid with travel expenses. Places to conduct monthly sew-ins and publicity for events are always needed.

Particularly, we hope to expand our work outside of our home region. To do this, we need local leaders and local support. Care Cap Connections™ will provide our experience and periodic on-the-ground assistance should it be desired. Catch the vision! Let us help you make it happen!

Summarized: We are a unique project. Still, our requirements are those of other public charities. Care Caps needs helpers.

Consider your part. What can you give?

"IMPORTANT NOTICE:  These web pages will be discontinued in the near future.  Their underlying technical elements are outdated plus our site has been hacked repeatedly recently. We are in discussion with our developer to update and move to a new host.  HOWEVER, a complete movement of all the current information may no longer be practical for our uses.  Our basic use now of any site will be the continuing the Quarterly Calendar.  The notices posted to our volunteers as to the place/date/time are generally of interest only to that target group.  It may be that Mary will send individual emails to each team member rather than use carecaps.org. "Care Caps" is maxed-we do not seek to expand-not in volunteers, not in clinics to receive caps, not in production, not in financial backing, not in distribution and more.  What a blessing! Thank you all for making your contributions to the project. The web pages may not continue but Care Caps will keep shipping...   INGRAM and MARY "
