Storage Solutions and its affiliate, Union Development Co. (UDC), are sponsoring their annual holiday toy drive benefiting the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots program. The self-storage operator is collecting toys at each of its 21 locations throughout Southern California.
In addition to supporting the holiday cause, individuals who drop off a new, unwrapped toy will be eligible for Storage Solutions discounts. New customers can save 50 percent off a new self-storage rental, and existing customers can save 25 percent off boxes and moving supplies. The collection ends December 19 at 5:30 p.m.
The toy drive is a long-standing tradition for the company, as is a monetary donation made each year when the Marine Corps Reserve picks up toys collected at the company’s headquarters. Last year, Storage Solutions and UDC presented a $500 check for the program to Master Sgt. Wayne Harkley, Ret., who’s now an instructor of Fontana High School Marine Corps Junior Officers Training Corps.
"The company has been involved with Toys For Tots for a long time and everyone here is very proud to support the program. We enjoy making it easy for customers and our local communities to get involved, too," said Jae Ho, operations manager.
