South Carolina self-storage operator Plantation Storage raised $1,118.45 to support breast cancer charities and the American Cancer Society.
The operator committed to donating $10 for every new storage rental during the month of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness month. It also donated $1 for each UPS shipment to the American Cancer Society during October.
"Raising awareness and funds for breast cancer was more than just a cause to support for the month of October for Southeast Management Co.,” said March Chase, company vice president and director of operations for Plantation Storage. “This is a cause that’s personal and near and dear to our hearts. It has touched the lives of family members among several individuals within our organization. October served as a platform for us to get our customers involved and promote advocacy to help find a cure. On behalf of Southeast Management Co., I would like to personally thank each and every individual who donated funds to fight breast cancer, as well as every employee within our company. Without your efforts, this would not have been possible."
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.
Plantation Storage has one location in Bluffton, two in Columbia and one in Myrtle Beach. The company is managed by Southeast Management Co.
