ELKINS — An area business has helped the Randolph County United Way reach its goal for the year by making a donation to the campaign.

Ryan Legg, CEO and founder of Mega Corp Logistics, said his company supports United Way’s mission.

“We know the great work of the United Way here in Randolph County, and MegaCorp is happy to support their efforts,” Legg said. “Since our inception, we have supported United Way as we recognize the impact it makes in local communities. We appreciate that they fund partner agencies that are meaningful and serve families, friends and neighbors that need a helping hand.”

United Way Board President Kathy Leombruno said the donation from MegaCorp was generous and will help the community achieve “great things.”

“Our new executive director, Karrah Washington, reached out to (Legg) with our shortage appeal and he responded quickly — his contribution not only tops our goal, it helps achieve great things in our community,” she said.

The 2017 goal for Randolph County United Way was $120,000, and the MegaCorp donation of $3,500 helped to put them over the top.

When individuals give to United Way, they are ultimately giving to partner agencies that touch the lives of Randolph County by ensuring basic needs are met, providing educational services, offering health care assistance and promoting self-reliance.

Twenty non-profit organizations in the county will receive 100 percent of the funds from the campaign – some of these groups include the Randolph-Tucker Children’s Advocacy Center, Catholic Charities and all public libraries throughout the county.

MegaCorp Logistic, founded by Denise and Ryan Legg in 2009, specializes in full truckload shipments — dry van, refrigerated, flatbed, intermodal, etc. — and less-than-truckload shipments throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. MegaCorp is committed to creating long-term, strategic partnerships with customers who range from Fortune 100 companies to smaller, regional partnerships and distributors. MegaCorp serves all business sectors of the United States economy including, but not limited to, food, retail, government, textiles, metals and building materials.

United Way of Randolph County is planning an outdoor yard sale to be held April 28. Items may be dropped off to the United Way office, located at 309 Henry Ave., during business hours, or individuals may arrange for large item pick-ups by calling 304-636-0516 or emailing info@unitedwayrandolphwv.com.
