The U-Haul Co. of Illinois is offering 30 days of free self-storage to all residents who have been affected by the April 19 tornadoes, which were concentrated in small towns in the south central part of the state.
In addition to offering 30 days of free self-storage, U-Haul encourages people who need boxes to take advantage of U-Haul's Take a Box, Leave a Box program. The program allows customers to return their reusable boxes or take them for free as needed.
"These tornadoes have caused a tremendous amount of damage to the many communities we serve," stated Jay Bjork, president of U-Haul Co. of Illinois. "I hope this effort will help provide assistance to families that need support. We will continue to help our friends and neighbors in this time of need."
Established in 1945, U-Haul has a network of more than 16,300 locations throughout the United States and Canada. The company offers more than 36 million square feet of self-storage space at nearly 1,100 facilities throughout North America.
