Amazing Spaces Storage Centers and the Texas Self Storage Association (TSSA) partnered again this year to raise money for Shriners Children’s Hospital in Galveston. The Make a Difference campaign emphasizes the contributions to the hospital by self-storage owners in their communities. Amazing Spaces and TSSA have supported the Shriners Children’s Hospital for the past seven years. Donations to the hospital surpassed $230,000 in 2009.
“We’re always so excited each year to help this wonderful charity that has been providing a wonderful service to children in our area since 1960,” said Kathy Tautenhahn, marketing director for Amazing Spaces. This year the self-storage operator matched dollar for dollar the money raised at each of its locations to double the amount raised. All proceeds go directly to the Shriners Hospital for Children in Galveston.
The 2010 TSSA Make a Difference campaign ended at the association’s annual convention, Oct. 17-20, in Fort Worth.
Shriners Hospitals for Children is a health-care system of 22 hospitals dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing pediatric specialty care, innovative research, and outstanding teaching programs for medical professionals. Children up to age 18 with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate are eligible for care and receive all services in a family-centered environment, regardless of the patients’ ability to pay.
