“It’s inspiring to see an industry come together for a good cause. In a year that has been trying for not only the logging community but the country as a whole, individuals and companies continue to give their time, product, and support to the Log-A-Load for Kids Auction,” Danny Sines, president of the Mountain Loggers Group, said. “We enjoy our relationship with WVU Medicine Children’s and hope to continue it for many years to come.”
At the auction, loads of logs and other donated items were sold under the names of the contributors. Proceeds from the auction are donated to WVU Medicine Children’s on behalf of the participating forestry and wood-products companies.
To date, the Mountain Loggers Group has donated more than $1.9 million to WVU Medicine Children’s.
“The members of the Mountain Loggers Group have been dedicated supporters of WVU Medicine Children’s for years,” Cheryl Jones, R.N., vice president of WVU Medicine Children’s Nursing and associate chief nursing officer for Children’s, who accepted the check, said. “We are grateful for their continued generosity and support of WVU Medicine Children’s Hospital, which will provide care to children and women from across the state and region.
