TORNADO SURVIVORS-HOW YOU CAN HELP
Date
06/06/2012
Description
  • The outpouring of concern and compassion for our patients being treated for storm-related injuries has been inspiring. The generosity of our community is overwhelming and greatly appreciated. During their stay at Children’s, all the needs of these youngsters are being addressed. Aside from the medical care they are receiving, they have also been provided clothing, toys and other necessities. Most importantly, every child, even those who lost one or both parents in the storm, has been reunited with a family member. Once these patients are discharged, their needs are likely to be great and we know you want to help. We encourage you to provide any assistance you can via these avenues:
  • Make a donation to the Salvation Army and/or the American Red Cross. Visit www.salvationarmy.org or www.redcross.org to make a financial donation and learn about other ways to give.
  • Give blood. Visit www.redcross.org or www.lifesouth.org to find the blood donation center closest to you.
  • The Children’s Hospital toy closet is well-stocked at this time so we ask that any toy donations be directed to Scott School (Hwy. 78 and Cherry Ave. in Pratt City) or the Christian Service Mission (3600 3rd Ave. S., Birmingham).
  • To provide financial assistance to our patient families, you may make a monetary donation to Children’s Hospital Foundation and earmark it for “Social Services.”
  • Many members of our community have offered to volunteer here at Children’s to help the children and families we’re caring for. As much as we would like to bring volunteers in to assist at this time, we must follow our regular hospital guidelines. To learn more, visit www.chsys.org, click “Ways to Give,” then “Volunteer.”
