Community Giving Project - October 2018

|

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.

The team at Poway Road Mini Storage chose to provide their donation to The Comfort Cub. October was Infant Loss Awareness Month. PRMS Facility Manager, Myriam Villarreal said she and her team wanted to help spread the word about an inspiring non-profit organization which helps women and families find relief when going through a traumatic event. “The Comfort Cub is the world's very first weighted therapeutic teddy bear that was created by Marcella Johnson in 1999 after her infant son, George, passed away. She invented it to help other mothers who were suffering from the loss of their child. The teddy bear is specially weighted and is intended to feel like holding a newborn.” 

The Comfort Cub has been distributing weighted cubs all over the world since 1999. Through the help of donations, they have delivered 13,442 cubs to women and families and hope to impact more lives each day. Furthermore, the Comfort Cubs can also help heal individuals going through any traumatic event at any age.

We are proud to support this local organization (offices are in Encinitas) which makes a global impact. Pictured above is Susan Heck, The Comfort Cub’s Program Director (L) and Myriam Villarreal (R).
