Caring for our most precious resources …through your generosity SWPA was able to raise $14,500 for Log A Load for Kids this year!
The SWPA Golf Tournament raised $3,565 and the Clay Shoot raised $10,935. The hospital recipients for this year’s donations will be Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital-Albany, GA and UF Health Jacksonville, FL.

Did you know?  The mission of the Log a Load For Kids Foundation program is to raise funds to improve children's health through treatment, education and research at Children's Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals and other local children's hospitals.

Log A Load for Kids is an annual campaign which began in 1988 when loggers and others in the forest products community donated the value of a load of logs to their local CMN hospital. Today, Log A Load is a leader in CMN Hospitals’ fundraising, raising more than $2 million annually through golf tournaments, fishing events, dinners, truck loads of log donations and other events.

Join us next year to support Log A Load!      Want to get involved in our Log A Load events? Please call or email the office.
