Huntsville Hospital Foundation kicks off  “Season of Caring” to help local kids overcome grief, loss

100% of all gifts benefit The Caring House children’s grief support program

HUNTSVILLE – Today, Huntsville Hospital Foundation (HHF) launched a special “Season of Caring” campaign to help the thousands of Madison County children who experience loss and grief each year. These children and families have a path toward healing and joy thanks to The Caring House, a childhood grief support program of Huntsville Hospital – the only program of its kind in Madison County.

The nonprofit’s goal is to raise $25,000 for The Caring House in the month of November in honor of Children’s Grief Awareness Month. These urgently needed funds will help Huntsville Hospital Foundation provide these grief services at no cost to area families, including evidence-based group sessions, one-on-one support, grief camps, and services throughout Huntsville and Madison public schools.

“Children express their grief differently, and are often the forgotten mourners in times of loss,” said Huntsville Hospital Foundation President Sarah Savage-Jones. “The Caring House’s clinically trained team helps families understand, navigate and cope with the bereavement process. This is only possible thanks to donor support. We hope you will join us in the Season of Caring so families have access to this priceless gift through the holidays and beyond.”

The Foundation urges that every gift helps. For example:

  • $30 provides supplies for one children’s grief support group,
  • $100 sponsors one child to attend the annual Camp Caring House grief camp, and
  • $250 provides an entire month of individual support sessions for a child.

Plus, for a limited time, each gift can have double the impact thanks to Bentley Automotive Group! Bentley is matching all donations to the Season of Caring effort, up to $20,000.

To learn more or make a tax-deductible donation, please visit www.huntsvillehospitalfoundation.org/seasonofcaring. 100% of each gift benefits The Caring House.

Donations can also be made over the phone by calling (256) 265-8077, or by check to the Foundation office: 801 Clinton Avenue East, Huntsville, AL 35801.
