Ceasar Chavez once said “We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community … Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sake and for our own.”

At Mega Industries Corporation we believe we are only as good as the community that surrounds us, and are fortunate enough to be able to give back, to the Kansas City community, that has supported us for over 20 years.  Whether it’s packing backsnacks with Harvesters, or buying Thanksgiving dinners, you’ll find us helping our community thrive in many different ways.

Mega partners with Operation Breakthrough

Operation Breakthrough

Operation Breakthrough is one of the largest single-site early education and social services facility in the State of Missouri serving 400 children daily from the urban core. Their vision is to allow all children to have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

Mega Industries Corporation is a very family oriented company and found Operation Breakthrough’s vision inspiring and a worthy recipient of our annual Thanksgiving Day donations. Every year the employee owners pool their money to provide a full Thanksgiving meal for families in need which includes turkeys purchased by the company for each meal. In November, 2015, Mega and its employee owners were able to provide 50 families with turkey and all the trimmings and we look forward to doing the same in 2016.

KC Parks

After Searcy Creek Greenway acquired a new playground through a foundation, the caretakers were still in dire need of a space closer to their children. Mega Industries Corporation worked in partnership with the Kansas City Parks and Recreation Department to make that happen.

Mega employees and their families gathered one Saturday morning to form concrete curbs and bench pads to serve that purpose; working with Geiger who generously donated the concrete materials needed to complete the project.

Mega partners with Harvestors

Harvestors

More than 100,000 children go hungry every day in the Kansas City metro area. While most of these children are provided with free breakfast and lunch at school, they often will go hungry over the weekend. Harvesters BackSnack program provides a backpack filled with nutritious, child-friendly food for school children to take home over the weekend.

Mega spent the day at Harvesters helping fill over 1,000 BackSnack backpacks for hungry children all over Kansas City.

Mega makes Thanksgiving great for those in need

Save Thanksgiving

In November of 2014 KC102.1, The Salvation Army, and Blue Bell teamed up to “Save Thanksgiving”. Mega joined them in their plight and not only donated 40 turkeys but also donated enough items to make those turkeys into full Thanksgiving dinners. Over 200 families, who would have gone without Thanksgiving dinner, were helped through their collective efforts.

The Roots

In March, local Boy Scout, Ian Trost, contacted Mega for help on his Eagle project – New Roots for Refugees, a charity that helps refugees cultivate their own small farm business. Ian wanted to help the farmers pour a new concrete slab so that workers didn’t have to stand in mud while cleaning their harvest. Matt Weber, with Mega Industries Corporation, spent the day teaching the Boy Scouts the process from beginning to end, and partnered with Geiger Ready Mix to supply the materials and expert advice this project needed.
