ALABAMA LOGGERS LEAD NATION IN HELPING CHILDREN

Loggers from Alabama have donated $500,000 to Children's Hospital over the past 19 months through the Log-A-Load For Kids program, a figure that leads the nation during that time period.

Log-A-Load For Kids is an annual campaign through which loggers and other forest-product workers donate the value of a load of logs, usually around $350, to local non-for-profit Children's Miracle Network hospitals. The program is now in its 14th year nationwide and was founded in 1992 in Alabama. Since that time, the program has raised more than $3.6 million for Children's Hospital.

Contributions through Log-A-Load For Kids help CMN-affiliated hospitals meet the financial deficits from families who cannot afford to pay for medical care. Funds are also dedicated to special projects, such as the purchase of a specific piece of medical equipment or underwriting the expenses of a specialized clinic. For more information or to find out how to get involved with Log-A-Load For Kids, contact Ivy Holmes (ivy.holmes@chsys.org) at (205) 939-3356.
