Westy Self Storage helped Share Joy International, a non-profit organization based in Ridgefield, Conn., collect more than 1,000 boxes for Haiti’s relief efforts.
Westy collected donations from 17 of its facilities in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York, and had all donations delivered to Westy in Wilton, Conn.
Volunteers spent a few weeks sorting through all the donated items including clothing for all ages, linens, towels, hygiene products and more. The packages will be loaded into a container and onto a ship and sent to Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
On Jan. 12, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, costing the lives of more than 50,000 people. Tens of thousands of people were left homeless and in need of immediate aid and assistance.
