Hawaii Self Storage is one of four recipients of the Inside Self-Storage 2009 Humanitarian Service Award. The award recognizes self-storage companies and professionals who support charitable causes. A $2,000 grant was given to the nonprofit organizations, projects, events or programs endorsed by the winners.
Because Hawaii Self Storage is locally owned and operated, its owner and employees believe they have a responsibility to give back to and invest in their community. Their passion is so strong they adopted the motto “community pride” to represent their commitment to serving the people of the state.
Over the past five years, the company’s charitable efforts have blossomed into nine community programs that have given out more than $250,000 in financial scholarships, books, sponsorships and donations. The programs are designed to invest in children’s education, athletics and literacy.
The company has implemented book drives and coordinated family events to support local high schools, libraries and charities. With the current financial crisis, Hawaii Self Storage has also stepped in to help families in need and support other local charities and organizations.
