THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

A Thomasville small business that makes superhero capes is hoping to go from local to national.

For the last few years, Everfan has celebrated National Superhero Day in Thomasville by helping people honor their personal heroes.

Teachers, nurses, baristas, you name it,  employees said it has been a blast.

They said this year is going to bigger and better.

The superhero attire company in Thomasville is hoping that this year's National Superhero Day will be a little more super.

"Leading up to National Superhero Day, we are going to be shipping out boxes to people who have recognized heroes in their lives," said CEO and Owner Scott Chastain.

For three years now, Chastain and his team have handed out capes to teachers, doctors, anyone that has been deemed a 'hero' in someone's life.

"It becomes a really powerful thing, usually by the time we leave, we've had people cry, run around the office with their superhero cape, it becomes a lot of fun and that's why we see the value in it," said Chastain.

This year Everfan is taking its product nationwide, hoping that people in other cities and states can join in on the fun.

"We hope to continue it and build up each year, just like it has here locally. It's taken a few years for folks to know what we are doing," said Chastain.

For every superhero kit sold, a similar package of gratitude goes to an active duty serviceman or woman.

"Everybody can agree they are usually underappreciated and not recognized enough for the work they do for our country. So, we found an organization up in North Georgia called Hero Box and they help partner us with a military unit overseas. So we know the unit they are going to and we have connected with them," explained Chastain.

Other small businesses in Thomasville have stepped up to donate items for the military boxes, showing their support for these heroes too.

Donations for the Herobox packages are provided by Flowers Foods, Thomasville Dental Center, Grassroots Coffee, Thomasville National Bank, The Bookshelf, You’re Maker, CNS, City of Thomasville, Jack’s BP, Southland Construction, Raley’s Confectionary, Reneau Paving and Ameris Bank.

Chastain hopes that Everfan will continue to make this fun holiday special for Thomasville and communities across the nation.

National Superhero Day falls on Saturday, April 28 this year.
