August 17 is National Nonprofit Day! Hugg & Hall is proud to work with nonprofits across three states. We want to take this day and feature a few of them.
Arkansas Children’s is the only hospital system in the state dedicated to caring solely for children. Their system includes two hospitals, a pediatric research institute, and clinics. Their Foundation team raises more than $30 million every year. Hugg & Hall supported the Foundation by running an equipment rental auction and donating 100% of the money to Arkansas Children’s.
Riverview Hope Campus is a shelter which provides comprehensive services to unhoused people in the Fort Smith Area. They are “more than just a homeless shelter” and provide temporary housing, meals, showers, laundry services, mental health services, skills classes, dog kennels, and more. Hugg & Hall has sponsored three Annual Charity Golf Tournaments benefitting Riverview Hope Campus, and we are currently organizing the Fourth Annual Tournament.
Tyson Food’s Meals That Matter supports disaster relief efforts by delivering and serving hot meals to victims, first responders, and volunteers. Meals That Matter provides aid following hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods throughout the country. Their semi-trailer is a mobile kitchen that can serve up to 20,000 meals per day! Across Arkansas and Louisiana, Hugg & Hall has provided equipment to assist Tyson Food’s disaster relief efforts.
The American Red Cross in Louisiana has been active in the state for over 100 years. It offers aid and resources to prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies, and serves all 64 parishes in the state.
Catholic Charities of Southwest Louisiana is located in Lake Charles, LA. They partner with Second Harvest Food Bank and assist with disaster relief in their area. In 2020, following Hurricanes Laura and Delta, Catholic Charities of Southwest Louisiana partnered with Hugg & Hall and Tyson’s Meals That Matter to help more than 300 impacted families.
The Maddry Grace Fishing Rodeo is an annual fundraiser hosted by Maddry Grace Trahan’s family. The fishing rodeo supports the Anna’s Grace Foundation, a nonprofit which offers aid to families who experience miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss.
Exchange Club of Muskogee works within their community to provide funding for local charities, community issues, school needs, and other donation requests. Their annual Exchange Club Chili Cookoff & Barbeque Night has raised over $1,500,000 for the community.
