In addition to assisting families in need, the fundraiser helped self-storage facilities gain exposure in their individual markets. More than 100,705 news websites posted press releases relating to the event, which resulted in approximately 264 storage-unit rentals for the participating members. Many facilities also acted as toy drop-off stations.
“We are happy with the results, especially during this recession. It shows us that people are still generous and willing to help those in need,” said said Megan Eckert, executive vice president of USstoragesearch.com. “Toys for Tots is a great foundation to work with, and our members are so generous.”
