Birmingham, AL , September. 26, 2012 — AT&T Alabama President Fred McCallum and Children’s of Alabama CEO Mike Warren announced today a total of $35,000 in AT&T contributions to Children’s Alabama. $10,000 was contributed to the Children's Hospital Intervention and Prevention Services (CHIPS Center), and $25,000 was contributed to the Family Clinic. Today’s announcement brings AT&T’s total recent contributions to Children’s to $100,000.
“Children’s depends mightily on community support to make the hospital a special place for kids,” said Children’s of Alabama Chief Development Officer, Coke Matthews. “For the last several years, AT&T has been a superb corporate supporter of some of our most critical programs.”
CHIPS Center is a place where child abuse victims can come for help and healing. The CHIPS staff is a team of specially trained clinical counselors, doctors, social workers, and nurses who work with law enforcement, the Department of Human Resources (DHR), and child advocacy center (CAC) representatives to provide the best possible care for children and families traumatized by physical and/or sexual abuse. The Family Clinic provides services for women and families infected/affected by HIV/AIDS.
“Children’s of Alabama is an important part of Birmingham and our entire state,” said AT&T Alabama President Fred McCallum. “We are proud to provide this support to help them in their mission to provide quality medical care for ill and injured children across Alabama.”
