Storage Asset Management (SAM), a self-storage property-management and consulting firm, announced its managed facilities recently donated $452 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a nonprofit that grants wishes to children with cancer. The money was raised through two initiatives at 70-plus of the firm’s properties, according to a press release.
First, the company held a company-wide “Jeans Day” on April 19, raising $90. Employees who donated to the cause could wear jeans to work that day.
Additionally, donations were collected via Facebook check-ins on each store’s social media page between April 15 and May 15. For every “check-in” at the facility, a dollar was donated. The campaign was advertised via the properties and through digital channels. The drive netted $362.
“We are so grateful to our store managers for their work in promoting this initiative. We are proud to make this donation to such a great foundation,” said Alyssa Quill, vice president and managing partner.
Founded in 2010 and based in York, Pa., SAM oversees 78 self-storage facilities in 20 states as well as three UPS Stores in 18 states, primarily along the East Coast.
