The holiday season is in full force these days and that means baking cookies, buying presents for that special someone, and helping out in any way possible to aid the less fortunate.

Since we began our business in 2004, this industry has evolved, but one thing has always remained constant: Self Storage Companies are some of the most giving and generous businesses in the world. Not only around the holiday season, but year round, storage companies are always in the news for helping the community and less fortunate in any way they can.

Here are just a few examples that have made the news releases recently

  • Extra Space Storage is working with Tender Hands Safe Haven
  • U-Store-It planting 5,000 trees since April for each mini storage unit rented
  • Westy Self Storage is currently a drop off spot for 6 different charities
  • donated all of its profits from the 4th quarter featured listing auction to a great organization known as Kure It
  • Hawaii Self Storage is currently offering a program known as “Rent to Charity”
  • Store More Self Storage is working with “Toys for Tots”

These are just a few examples of the extreme generosity from the self storage business.
