The Self Storage Association (SSA) has launched a four-step initiative to support relief efforts following Hurricane Katrina. First, the association will donate $5,000 to the American Red Cross. It will also donate an additional $25 for every Emergency Preparedness Manual it sells between now and Sept. 10. Third, the SSA has entered an agreement with the Red Cross to exhibit a booth for donations at its upcoming conference and tradeshow, Sept. 7-10, in Las Vegas. Attendees will be encouraged to make contributions. Finally, SSA Chairman Charles Broomfield has declared December as Self-Storage Disaster Relief Month. He will encourage association members to dedicate one month’s worth of their facilities’ administrative fees to the aid efforts. For more information, visit www.selfstorage.org.
