Everyone at San Diego Self Storage is proud to embark on the third year of our Community Giving Project, carrying on a tradition of giving back to San Diego. We love this project! San Diego Self Storage facilities span San Diego County from Temecula to Otay Mesa. We wanted to find a way for all 17 of our locations to develop meaningful ties to their local communities. We’ve given each site $500, which they may contribute to any organization they see fit. We’ve contributed to a variety of philanthropies, with charities benefiting children and animals at the top of the list. Our teams have also chosen to help fight cancer, contribute to local history and humanitarian efforts.
San Marcos Pop Warner is one of only a few organizations dedicated to kids ages 6 to 15 in the San Marcos area. This caught the attention of our San Marcos Mini Storage team. The staff at SMMS learned that San Marcos Pop Warner requires that players meet expectations with grades and education goals in order to play. Pop Warner also contributes to many community-based projects and encourages their young athletes to be involved with the community. “Our goal is to encourage and increase youth participation in football and cheerleading by providing a safe and positive playing environment for all participants, and to instill life-long values of teamwork, dedication and a superior work ethic in the classroom and on the field,” reads the mission statement. The Challenger Division was created with the mission of bringing the Pop Warner experience to special needs individuals in the San Marcos community as Players or Cheerleaders.
For all of these reasons, and many more, The San Marcos Mini Storage staff enthusiastically chose San Marcos Pop Warner as the beneficiary of this year’s charitable contribution.
