Extra Space Storage in Lady Lake, Fla., is working with several local charities to raise money and collect donations.
The facility is serving as a drop-off for donations to Project S.O.S. (Support Our Soldiers) to collect baby wipes, medical equipment and other items for overseas military personnel. After hearing about soldiers’ struggle to keep their skin cool and from drying out, founder Gary Kadow began collecting containers of baby wipes. Soon other items were added including walkers, canes, electric wheelchairs and scooters, and other medical equipment.
Extra Space Storage of Lady Lake also hosted a craft and gift show Nov. 12 to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Lake and Sumter counties. The facility also collects household goods for Devereux Kids, an organization that assists families by offering furniture and other household goods.
