With the recent devastating storms to hit the US in the past few months, self storage companies continue to be one of the most giving industries when it comes to helping those in need.

During the holidays we listed many of the generous things that the storage industry was participating in our self storage blog, but the self storage and mobile storage generosities don’t only occur during the holidays.

Here is a list of just a few of the recent activities the industry has participated in:

  1. Extra Space Storage recently offered two months free storage and a free $50 package of moving supplies to those affected by the devastating storms to hit Alabama. Link
  2. Scenic City Self Storage of Hixson, TN offered two months of rent free storage and was a drop off location for donations of food, clothing, and household supplies. Link
  3. A recent employee of a New England Self Storage Management group told us at a trade show that each and every month they ask their customers to “round-up” their rent payments to the nearest $0.50 or $1.00 and all proceeds from the “round-up” program are then donated each month to the great people and great program called Kure-It. Kure-it is a non-profit organization dedicated to funding innovative kidney and other cancer research. Kure-It Link
  4. Many of the employees at USstoragesearch.com recently participated in a blood drive in Omaha, NE. Over 30 people attending and donated. We had so many donations that the blood mobile ran out of bags and turned a few people away!!

Each and every day the self storage industry continues to give and give, and we’re very proud to be a part of it.
