Welcome to the home of our headquarters – Wilmington, Ohio!

R+L Carriers Corporate Office in Wilmington Ohio

R+L Carriers Corporate Office in Wilmington, Ohio

The R+L Carriers corporate office is located just outside Wilmington, Ohio on US Route 68 where it crosses I71, so it was easy to say yes when we were invited to a Wilmington “Operation Santa” fundraiser for needy families.

About Operation Santa

This charity, started by Ferno (also headquartered in Wilmington), provides wrapped toys and food for local families during the holidays. Ferno holds themed raffles throughout the year, as well as bake and Christmas ornament sales to raise funds for the project. The team then works with local schools to provide families with clothes and wrapped toys, which parents can then set out on Christmas morning.

Our NASCAR Race Car and Hauler

Rick and Sherryl Hackworth

Drivers Rick and Sherryl Hackworth brought our NASCAR race cars and hauler to the charity, antique car show and lunch event in August of 2012. There were more than 100 antique cars, trucks and motorcycles there, not including our two race cars! Check out the photo gallery below for more pictures of the hauler and the car show. When we caught up with Rick and Sherryl later that day, they both said:

“We felt very privileged to be a part of such a worthy cause.”

We were happy to donate items to the raffle, like the jacket on the right, to help the cause. Several other local businesses joined in as well, donating items and serving food.

Just like Rick and Sherryl, we left with a good feeling knowing we had helped with something very important.

If you’re driving through Wilmington on I71 you can’t miss our offices! Stop by for a visit, we’d love to see you.

Here are more photos of the event, our NASCAR race car and all those antique cars. Enjoy!
