In its first national collaboration with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots, PODS Enterprises Inc. provided more than 170 mobile-storage containers to support the organization’s annual holiday toy drive across the United States.
The Toys For Tots program, which runs from October through December, collects new, unwrapped toys and distributes them during the holidays for children in need throughout communities in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
“Our local PODS franchise owners and corporate stores were happy to have assisted Toys For Tots this holiday season,” said George Spowart, vice president of marketing. “We’re looking forward to providing Toys for Tots with secure onsite and offsite storage again next holiday season.”
Founded in 1998, PODS currently provides moving and storage services to a population of more than 240 million consumers, in 48 U.S. states, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom through its company-owned and independent franchise network. To date, the PODS network has completed more than 300,000 long-distance relocations, exceeded 1.6 million deliveries and has nearly 141,000 PODS containers in service.
