The annual Log-A-Load for Kids fundraiser for the Piedmont District, which includes Chambers County, will take place on Saturday, April 5 here in LaFayette. This year’s primary event is a sporting clay shoot.
Log-A-Load for Kids is a statewide campaign sponsored by the Alabama Loggers Council and the Alabama Forestry Association and the Children’s Hospitals of Alabama are Log A Load for Kids primary philanthropy recipient.
Log-A-Load unites loggers, landowners, foresters and wood products manufacturers in a common effort to benefit all of Alabama’s critically ill, injured and abused children, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.
Log-A-Load first partnered with The Children’s Hospital of Alabama in 1992 with a donation of more than $45,000. In 1995, Log-A-Load adopted the Children’s Hospital of Alabama CHIPS (Children’s hospital Intervention and Prevention Services) Clinic with a donation of over $265,000. Since that time, the campaign has raised more than $5 million dollars for Children’s of Alabama and The CHIPS Center.
Last year Log-A-Load was able to raise over $28,000 for the Children’s Hospital of Alabama and CHIPS Center.
Log-A-Load has become a statewide effort and Alabama is divided into districts and each district is responsible for fundraising in its area. A friendly competition has developed between the districts as to who can raise the most money each year.
This year in the Piedmont District, the Log-A-Load fundraiser will be a sporting clay shoot that will take place at The Oaks here in LaFayette on April 5. It will begin at 8:30 am CST.
Participants can sign-up as an individual or as a four-team for the 50-clay shoot. Shells will not be provided and no one under the age of 16 will be allowed to shoot; individuals’ ages 16-18 must have a parent or guardian present. Plaques will be awarded for the top three scoring teams and top scoring individual.
