New Era Cap ties up with JRF

Feb '10
In a time when financial support is needed more than ever for students, New Era Cap Co., Inc., the premiere, global headwear designer and manufacturer, has announced it will continue its strong partnership with the Jackie Robinson Foundation (JRF) during the month of February 2010 by donating $1 for every cap purchased at its New Era Flagship Stores to the JRF scholarship program. The Company's support coincides with Black History Month which celebrates influential African Americans including the remarkable Jackie Robinson.

"New Era is extremely proud to continue its partnership with the Jackie Robinson Foundation and help contribute to the education of the leaders of tomorrow," said New Era CEO Christopher H. Koch. "We hope to build upon the success of last year's campaign to increase awareness and raise money for this great organization named in honor of the immortal Jackie Robinson."

Along with financial support and in-kind contributions, New Era will continue to have an active role in mentoring JRF scholars, who are distinguished minority students with financial need and records of leadership capacity, with internships and career placements.

"New Era has been a great friend and benefactor of the Jackie Robinson Foundation, both through its generous donations and ongoing public efforts," said Della Britton Baeza, President and CEO of the Jackie Robinson Foundation. "New Era's continued support allows the Foundation to advance its mission of creating a strong pool of well-prepared, young leaders, while informing the national dialogue on closing the achievement gap in higher education."
