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.
The staff at each of our facilities chooses an organization that’s meaningful to them, impresses them, or sometimes, because they have personal experience with the cause. That was the case with our team at Sorrento Mesa Self Storage. Assistant Manager, Ciara Silvas, provided a therapy dog for her mother who struggled with depression from nerve damage. Ciara saw first hand how a therapy dog helped to change her mother’s life for the best. Today, Ciara’s mom is leading a happy life, with her dog right by her side.
It was this personal story that influenced the SMSS staff'’s decision to provide their donation to Paws’itive Teams. The Mission of Paws'itive Teams is to enhance the lives of individuals with special needs who live in San Diego County, by utilizing the skills of highly trained Service and Therapy Dogs. Paws’itive Teams will be using the Sorrento Mesa Self Storage donation to assist with costs related to service dog training. The team at SMSS believes this is a great organization and were more than happy to make a contribution.
