Log A Load originated in South Carolina in 1988 to demonstrate logger commitment to community service and professionalism.
The concept was for loggers and wood supplying businesses to donate the value of a load of logs to a Children’s Miracle Network affiliated hospital. Funds were used in treating ill and injured children.
