Huntsville Hospital Foundation is combining crawfish and live music this Spring to raise money for a great cause. The third annual event will help start a new Diaper Assistance Program at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children, helping low-income patient families who need immediate assistance with diapers.
“Claws for a Cause is going to be a great day full of food, drinks and live music,” said Aaron Caradonna, chairman of the Foundation’s Development Council. “But, the really fun part is what it is going to benefit. The new Diaper Assistance Program will jumpstart low-income patient families who do not have access to diapers, wipes and resources, so that they can leave Huntsville Hospital with about a week’s supply of diapers, plus the information they need to get further resources in our community.”
[themify_box color=”lavender” icon=”info”]8% of parents admit to letting their child stay in a diaper they knew was dirty to make them last longer, and even scraping a dirty diaper clean to reuse it. Couple that with the fact that more than a quarter of Alabama’s children live in poverty, and you can see how there is a huge need for diaper assistance in Huntsville.[/themify_box] Claws for a Cause is kid-friendly and will be a great time for the whole family. All of that delicious food will be catered by local restaurant New Orleans Lunchbox, with live music performed by Liquid Caravan.
Last year’s Claws for a Cause raised a record $15,000 for the Huntsville Hospital Neurological ICU, providing new cardiac chairs and communication boards for the unit.
