Storage Asset Management Inc. (SAM) has launched a “Spread Goodwill” clothing drive at the 24 self-storage facilities it manages to benefit Goodwill Industries. Facility managers will be accepting donations of clothing and shoes through June 30.
“Goodwill Industries reaches out to youth, seniors, veterans and military families, immigrants, people with disabilities, and others with specialized needs in our communities,” said Julie Purcell, director of marketing at SAM. “In 2010, Goodwill Industries helped nearly 2.4 million people through their employment and training programs. We hope people ‘clean their closets for a cause’ this summer.”
SAM property managers have been hard at work distributing fliers and spreading the word about the drive, according to SAM Vice President Alyssa Quill. So far the response from local businesses, the local communities and the company’s customer base has been very positive, she said.
SAM is a full-service self-storage management and consulting company formed in May 2010. The company currently manages 24 properties in mid-Atlantic and northeast states.
