San Diego, CA, January 8, 2016 - In 2015, San Diego Self Storage employees made charitable contributions across San Diego County benefiting education, kids, animals, art, music and more. The employees at each of our 17 locations were able to select a charity of their choice and personally deliver the funds.
To bring 2015 to a close, our customers, friends, neighbors and corporate partners all came together to help support the Toys For Tots annual toy drive, coordinated by the Marines Corps Reserves. 2015 marked the 17th year San Diego Self Storage has participated in the toy drive. With your donations, and the support of our 17 locations around San Diego County, we were able to contribute nearly 16,000 toys and over $600 in cash donations to this worthwhile cause.
In San Diego alone, more than 56,000 children are registered with the program. San Diego Self Storage is a proud supporter of Toys for Tots and we are so pleased we could make a significant contribution this year. “We are an organization of compassionate people who care about our community, and we hope to continue to make a positive impact in San Diego. Our charitable project works to involve our employees, to stress the value of remaining an active participant in the community,” said Director of Operations, Kraig Haviland.
About Toys for Tots
The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.
The principal Toys for Tots activity which takes place each year is the collection and distribution of toys in the communities in which a Marine Corps Reserve Unit is located. In communities without a Reserve Unit, the campaign can be conducted by a Marine Corps League Detachment or group of men and women, generally veteran Marines, authorized by Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to conduct a local Toys for Tots campaign. Local Toys for Tots Campaign Coordinators conduct an array of activities throughout the year, which include golf tournaments, foot races, bicycle races and other voluntary events designed to increase interest in Toys for Tots, and concurrently generate toys and monetary donations.
