The Oaks In LaFayette Host Annual Piedmont District Log A Load for Kids

April 16, 2021 Off By Gator


The annual Log A Load for Kids is scheduled for Saturday, April 17th. This rain or shine event is a state-wide campaign that has traditionally seen great success here in Chambers County and that is expected to be the case hopefully once again this year.

Log A Load for Kids is a statewide campaign sponsored by the Alabama Loggers Council and the Alabama Forestry Association. It unites loggers, landowners, foresters, and wood product manufacturers in a common effort to benefit all 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 $45,000.00. In 1995, they adopted the Children’s Hospital of Alabama CHIPS Clinic with a donation of over $265,000. Since that time, the campaign has raised more than $6 million dollars for Children’s of Alabama and The CHIPS Center.

The statewide effort is divided into districts and each district is responsible for fundraising in its area. This year in Chambers County the Piedmont District, the Log A Load fundraiser will be a Sporting Clay Shoot, a Turkey Shoot, and a live auction, scheduled for April 17th, at The Oaks in Lafayette.

The day will feature shooting rounds, breakfast, and lunch, guess the weight of a load of wood, fun for the kids, guessing the amount of M&M’s in a  jar, and a live auction of donated items from the area.
