Angry vsftp anonymous read access

I hope someone can help me! I am running vsftp on redhat 8.0. For the program I am running, I need to allow anonymous access for uploading files. I've done this without a hitch. I also need to allow users to download the files that have been uploaded anonymously. Whenever a file is uploaded it gets set to -rw---- (600) (owner and group is ftp user). How do I go about configuring the files to be set as -rw-r--r--? (644) when uploaded? THe directory is set at 777.

Thanks in advance!
