Hearing and Speech Department Receives $21,000 from Chick-fil-A

BIRMINGHAM (April 6, 2021) – Chick-fil-A donated $21,000 to Children’s of Alabama recently, making good on its football season pledge to donate $1,000 per interception by the University of Alabama and Auburn University football teams to help treat ill and injured kids at the state’s only freestanding pediatric hospital.

Money donated by Chick-fil-A through Picks for Kids is used by The Charity League Hearing & Speech Clinic to provide comprehensive evaluation and therapy services for children requiring inpatient and outpatient treatment. Children’s team of audiologists and speech-language pathologists are trained to assess and treat areas of speech, language, feeding, hearing and balance.

“We were thrilled to be able to partner with Chick-fil-A, Alabama and Auburn again this football season,” said Jill Smith, director of Children’s Hearing and Speech Department. “Chick-fil-A and its operators have been great advocates for the children and families we treat, from touring and learning about what we do to their generous financial support for our medical programs.”
