More than 320 U-Store-It Trust self-storage facilities are making a difference in their communities by participating in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve's Toys for Tots Program this holiday season. Local residents are encouraged to donate new, unwrapped toys at a participating location now through Dec. 15. U-Store-It will collect, store and deliver the donations to a Toys for Tots representative for distribution to children within each community.
Over the past 63 years, Toys for Tots has distributed more than 400 million toys to more than 188 million needy children. "Building on last year's success, our managers are excited to collect toys and make a contribution to children in their local communities again this holiday season," said Steve Hartman, U-Store-It’s senior vice president of marketing.
A heavy concentration of participating stores can be found in Albuquerque, N.M.; Canton, Ohio; Chicago; Frisco, Texas; Indianapolis; Jacksonville, Fla.; Memphis, Texas; San Bernardino, Calif.; Tucson, Ariz.; and West Palm Beach, Fla.
U-Store-It is a self-administered and self-managed real estate investment trust that owns and or manages 487 facilities across the United States, and operates the U-Store-It Network, which consists of approximately 684 additional self-storage facilities.
