The Giving Season Initiative, a holiday-season fundraising effort led by Storage Investment Advisors LLP (SIA), a Houston-based investment real estate services firm focused on the self-storage industry, and its Indianapolis-based marketing firm, The Streetview Group, netted thousands of dollars in donations to support social-services agencies in Houston, Indianapolis and Los Angeles. The donations were raised through an appeal program directed to self-storage owners and industry-related service companies. Storage Choice, a Dallas-based facility owner, supported the effort by processing electronic contributions.
The fundraiser recipients were:
- Child Advocates, a Houston-based agency that guides more than 1,750 abused children each year to safe environments where they can thrive.
- The Downtown Women's Center, a Los Angeles group that provides meals, housing, healthcare, educational and other supportive services to help homeless women achieve self-sufficiency.
- Dayspring Center, an Indianapolis organization that provides emergency shelter, clothing, meals, case-management services and transitional housing support to 150 homeless families annually.
"SIA and Streetview are committed to helping worthy organizations in our hometowns, and we were overwhelmed by the generosity of our friends, colleagues and clients in the self-storage industry who participated in the Giving Season Initiative. One hundred percent of their support was directly applied to providing abused children and homeless families with holiday gifts, food, clothing and basic life necessities, said Aaron Swerdlin, SIAs managing partner.
Founded in 2006, SIA manages self-storage property dispositions, acquisitions and capital market executions/financing on behalf of institutional and private capital clients.
