BECKLEY, W.Va. (WVVA) A local car dealership owner is working to make a difference in his community.
L&S Toyota owner Shawn Ball announced the donation of $20,000 to the United Way of Southern West Virginia on Wednesday through the Toyota Dealer Match program.
The United Way supports dozens of programs throughout the region, helping adults and children in need with everything from shoes to clothing.
“They get the phone calls from people who are in need. When someone has a major life crisis come up, that’s someone they can call,” said Ball.
Wednesday’s donation comes following Ball’s donation of more than $50,000 dollars to local non-profits earlier this year through his company’s annual Facebook challenge. Dozens of area non-profits receive critical support from the giveaway.
