Our 2018 Toys for Tots Campaign is Here!


The season of giving is upon us and we have launched our annual Toys for Tots drive. San Diego Self Storage has supported Toys for Tots for over 20 years. In San Diego, there are more than 56,000 children registered with the program. San Diego Self Storage has a goal to collect 1000 toys at each of our locations - over 17,000 toys! We are so proud to serve as a sponsor of Toys for Tots and look forward to your help in making it a great year for San Diego children.

As a corporate sponsor, our facilities serve as collection sites, and SDSS employees serve as volunteers and provide trucks to transport toys. We are partnering with local businesses to increase the number of collection sites. We also assist with large events coordinated by the Marine Corps Reserves.  Here are some dates to mark on your calendar:

November 5th - December 16th: Drop off your new, unwrapped toy at any of our locations across San Diego County. Your friends, family and co-workers, even your neighbors can donate toys, too! All of our locations serve as official collection sites. Please share this newsletter with your friends who will want to participate. (Find the location nearest you!)

November 18th: Find our booth at the Encinitas Street Fair! We should be easy to spot - look for Santa Claus! You are welcome to drop off a new, unwrapped toy in our collection boxes. We are accepting donations during the Street Fair. 

December 7th: NBC Toy Drive with NBC Studios. San Diego Self Storage will assist the Marine Corps Reserves and NBC San Diego in collecting toys all day. Stop by the event and drop off your new, unwrapped toy! Watch for our segment on the morning news. 

December TBD: Watch our segments on FOX Morning News, live with Santa Claus!

The Naval Marine Corps Reserve would really appreciate your help to sort, count and get toys ready for distribution. If you would like to volunteer for the program, please visit the website and submit the volunteer form.   

We thank you in advance for helping to support the Toys for Tots program, and one very simple goal: Through a new toy at Christmas, provide a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
