ELKINS — An area business has helped the Randolph County United Way reach its goal for the year by making a donation to the campaign, in the amount of $10,000.

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.”

The 2019 goal for Randolph County United Way was $110,000, and the MegaCorp donation of $10,000 put the United Way goal 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.

Eighteen non-profit organizations in the county will receive the funds from the campaign — some of these groups include the Randolph-Tucker Children’s Advocacy Center, Catholic Charities, Meals on Wheels, 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 distribution of shoes for those in need in community from a donation from GREATS. Shoes will be distributed to the funded partners of the United Way of Randolph County for direct distribution to our community.
