At San Diego Self Storage, we believe that community involvement is at the forefront of what differentiates our company from competitors. Each year, we look forward to our San Diego Food Bank Drive and the Toys for Tots campaign. And throughout the year, each of our locations generously donates time and funds to their favorite and local charitable organizations. The team at San Diego Self Storage’s corporate office is delighted to support several more San Diego-based charities through the year, such as the San Diego Gulls Foundation, Connor’s Cause, Big Brothers, Big Sisters Program, Doors of Change, the San Diego Police Department's K-9 Unit and so many more.
Pictured above is Eric Jallo, Facility Manager at North County Self Storage (L), providing a check to Captain Michael F. Owen, President & Executive Director of VETality Corp. This wonderful organization dedicates itself to reintegrating US military veterans into society through education, training and career networking thereby increasing veteran employment.
Captain Owen says, "My fellow Marine brothers and I created a Non-Profit Organization with the intentions of reducing the negative statistics associated with veterans today, such as unemployment, suicide and drug abuse. We understand first hand the struggles of transitioning military personnel and the obstacles they face upon discharge from the armed forces. Our organization utilizes first hand experiences from previously separated service members, and adjacent networks to facilitate a solution based model for successful transition from military to civilian life. The Directors at VETality Corp are committed to formulating a collaborative approach to significantly minimizing veteran unemployment rates, and providing veterans with life counseling, mental health opportunities, career education and vocational support. We will not let our men and women go unassisted after they have sacrificed so much for the freedom of others."
San Diego Self Storage and all of our San Diego locations have long remained committed to supporting our military families. For this reason and for the amazing work that VETality Corp accomplishes, it is easy to understand why the North Country Self Storage team chose this incredible organization for this year's charitable gift.
