ALBANY, NY – This fall, CAP COM Federal Credit Union was proud to become Twill’s largest corporate partner. After experiencing the loss of CAP COM employee and family member Alex Stopera earlier this year, the CAP COM Cares Foundation looked for a way to honor him and all of the people who donated in his name. CAP COM discovered Twill, an Albany organization born just three years ago with the mission “Give Where You Live.”

“CAP COM partnered with Twill to provide totes and blankets to all 350 of our staff members. Through the Blanket Buddy Program, an additional 350 blankets were donated to seven organizations in the Capital Region. From the start, Twill Co-Founders Zac and Jer were easy to relate to and talk to. There was an immediate sense of comfort and relief that an organization such as Twill was created to show people that someone cares for them. Together, in partnership with Twill, we delivered hundreds of smiles while paying it forward in loving memory of Alex,” said Amanda Goyer, CAP COM Cares Foundation Administrator.

Together, CAP COM and Twill will donate and deliver 350 blankets to the following organizations in our region: Mental Health Association, Cohoes Community Center, Unity House, Joseph’s House, St. Paul’s Center, Northern Rivers and Vanderheyden.

"We are so thrilled to be partnered with such a community-minded business like CAP COM. They truly care about the community in which they do business, they care about their employees and they've helped lift the spirits of our small startup company,” said Zachary Halloran Twill’s CEO & Founder.
