Storage Post Self Storage donated a 10 -foot-by- 10 -foot self-storage unit to St. Paul R.C. Church in New Jersey. The church will use the climate-controlled rental space at the Suffern, N.Y., Storage Post location for three months .
“We are thrilled to help the St. Paul parish by offering them storage at no cost,” said manager Sebastyan Kopolovich. “The church and our primary contact, Judith Walsh, are very active in the community and we want to do our part to enhance the quality of the neighborhood.”
The church will use the rental unit to store collected materials that will be sold to raise scholarship funds. Each year, the social concerns committed fro St. Paul R.C. Church holds a rummage sale fundraiser for its annual scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to local students in Newark. It was created to provide opportunities for inner city children to attend a local parochial school. Last year, the committee offered tuition support for 10 scholarship students from the proceeds of the rummage sale.
The church will be using Storage Post’s rental unit to house many of the items collected from July 1 until the day of the sale, Oct. 1. The donations typically consist of furniture, household goods, toys and more.
The social concerns committee assists St. Paul parish members who are experiencing hardships. They serve and provide food for soup kitchens, prepare meals for families in need and conduct an annual rummage sale to fund scholarships for inner city and local students.
Headquartered in Atlanta, Storage Post has locations throughout the East Coast and is actively pursuing self-storage acquisitions.
