On July 24, the first day on which it will be legal for same-sex couples to wed in the state of New York, representatives from Manhattan Mini Storage will be at New York City Hall to give away three months of free storage as a wedding gift to gay couples. In addition, the self-storage company will capture couples on film sharing their love stories. The video will be posted to special Twitter and Facebook pages created for the celebration.
"We're thrilled to be witnesses at this historic event. It's truly an honor to be there on the big day and share in all of these great love stories,” said Stacy Stuart, vice president of marketing. “This will give us a chance to congratulate the couples, set them up with some free storage, and spread the word that New York City is the best place on earth to live and love.
This summer Manhattan Mini Storage ran an ad campaign with the message, “If you don't like gay marriage, don't get gay married.” Stuart said this is the company’s chance to stand by its words and “celebrate a true victory for equality."
Manhattan Mini Storage is a family-owned company that has provided self-storage for more than 40 years. The company has supported community causes including the NYC AIDS Walk, Partnership for the Homeless, Animal Haven and others.
