One of the new campaigns we are starting is called Blankets and Booties for a benefit. Anyone that knows how to sew, knit or crochet can participate in providing one or several blankets or booties to keep the kiddos warm during their hospital stays. Even if you don't know how, you can help us with donations of material, gift cards to Hobby Lobby or Jo-Ann Fabrics.
We are working with a church group to provide us with a 'kick off' batch that we will already be ready to deliver this year!
Many children and families spend their holiday season in the hospital. Each year we like to deliver as many gifts as possible off of the Children's of Alabama Wish List. Anything from toys, games, toiletries's, gift cards and gaming systems.
Interested in donating? Below is a link for the Children's of Alabama Wish List.
As it gets closer to Christmas we will coordinate getting the gifts to Children's Hospital. We will collect gifts throughout the year. Designate your online donation for this cause or mail your "Wish List" items to our address.
SUPPORTING THE NEEDS
WE GIVE BACK!
Austin 1st is flexible and wants to support the needs of medical organizations, charities that align with our mission, or families going through a medical hardship.
We will donate financially or provide resources we may already have (medical equipment, blankets). We also love to partner on "give back" events. Please, help us continue to give back and donate today!

FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES
Each year we want to find a family in need with a rare disease situation that we can support with a large contribution. The resources provided to the family selected can be flexible to meet their needs.
So far Austin 1st has donated a variety of disability equipment and other products including; multiple
Tumble Form Adapted chairs, gait trainer walker, supine stander, Bath Otter bathing system, KidKart, special needs car seats, medical supplies, formula, diapers, weighted blankets, and other adaptive wear to local families in need and organizations that support our mission. We want to continue providing these donations to children and families throughout each year.
Contact us today if you or someone you know is in need of medical equipment or other resources.
