Uncle Bob’s Self Storage is organizing a book drive to support a summer reading program in the Austin, San Marcos and San Antonio, Texas, market areas. The company’s intent is to provide area children with free reading materials for the summer.
“Our company has a culture of giving back to the community,” said Monty Rainey, area manager. “In these difficult economic times, we want to do our part to make sure children have the resources they need to make their summer more enjoyable and productive.”
Children and young adult books can be donated through May 31 at any of the 21 Uncle Bob’s facilities in these markets. The donated books will be delivered to area schools for distribution to the local children and their families free of charge. Additionally, Uncle Bob’s Self Storage will work with the schools to enable the children and young adults to trade in previously read books for new ones.
Uncle Bob’s Self Storage is owned by Sovran Self Storage Inc., a real estate investment trust that acquires and manages self-storage facilities.
