Our Recent Causes:
Because we manufacture in the USA, we were able to distribute more than 50,000 garments to variety of Haitian relief groups within hours of the earthquake. Our employees at the factory boxed up socks, shorts, shirts and blankets which our shipping arm, Fresh Air, delivered to the Port of LA and to container ships off the coast of Florida for direct shipment into Port au Prince.
