One of our Production Designers here in Bentonville, Desmond Alexander, traveled to Houston shortly after Hurricane Harvey to be with his family, clean homes, and distribute water to victims. OC assisted Desmond with his travel expenses during his weeklong stay. 

We sent hats with Desmond to pass out and donated 1,000 caps to Hirsch Gifts for distribution. We also pledged to donate $1.00 for every dozen meshbacks sold in the month of September. Today’s the last day to get your orders in for that!
