San Diego Self Storage (SDSS) is sponsoring its annual holiday toy drive benefiting the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots organization. The self-storage operator will collect toys at each of its 19 locations throughout the greater San Diego region.
The toy drive will begin with a kickoff event Nov. 20 at 2 p.m. aboard the USS Midway. Admission is free to anyone who donates a new, unwrapped toy. The festivities will include raffles, prizes, refreshments and an appearance by The Charger Girls. The SDSS booth will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and will include a Toys For Tots jack-in-the-box game where children can win stuffed animals.
During the toy drive, all SDSS facilities will also hold raffles for a $100 credit toward storage rental for new or existing tenants. To enter the raffle, individuals may sign up when dropping off a new, unwrapped toy. The collection ends Dec. 19 at 6 p.m. Drawings will be held at each location on Dec. 20.
"This is our twelfth annual Toys For Tots toy drive and we’re proud to sponsor this effort on behalf of the children within the communities we serve,” said J. Terry Aston, SDSS managing partner. “Our network of neighborhood self-storage facilities makes it convenient for all San Diegans to get involved."
Founded in 1972, San Diego Self Storage is one of the largest self-storage providers in San Diego County with a network of 19 neighborhood self-storage facilities and additional locations in Los Angles, Riverside and Orange counties.
