New London Self Storage in Connecticut is donating a unit to an after-school program designed to keep kids off the streets.
The facility is offering a large storage space free of charge to Heavy Hitters USA, a non-profit organization that provides after-school and early-evening wrestling, boxing and conditioning programs for kids and young adults from New London and surrounding towns.
Heavy Hitters plans to store its mobile boxing ring, mats and other gear in the unit. Len Goldstein, owner of New London Self Storage, said the program is a worthy cause. “We saw these kids walk in off the streets, some of them following their older siblings inside. If they didn't have this program, these kids would have sought out drugs, alcohol or worse.”
