Log a Load for Kids

AOL annually sponsors Log A Load For Kids in Oregon (LAL), as part of a national fund-raising campaign for the forest products community to participate in the Children's Miracle Network campaign (CMN). Oregon Log A Load For Kids raises funds for charitable donation to three local CMN children's hospitals-- Doernbecher Children Hospital, Sacred Heart Medical Center, and Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center.

Loggers, forest owners, mills and allied harvest businesses in Oregon are joining together to support a most worthwhile cause- medical care for our children.

Here in Oregon, Associated Oregon Loggers sponsors Log A Load For Kids, part of a national fund-raising campaign for the forest products community to participate in the Children's Miracle Network.

The concept is that loggers and timber companies donate their share of earnings from a load of logs, as well as other donations, events etcetera.

Log A Load For Kids nationally has become a top 15 donor to the CMN, since its 1988 origin in South Carolina. Loggers in over 25 states have state-based Log A Load For Kids campaigns that annually raise funds for their local CMN hospitals. Collectively, the national Log A Load For Kids campaign raises nearly $1 million annually for the CMN telethon.
