Uncle Bob’s Self Storage, which is owned and operated by self-storage real estate investment trust Sovran Self Storage Inc., is joining the National Association of Letter Carriers in its annual campaign, Stamp Out Hunger in America, on May 12. In addition to donating the use of its rental trucks, Uncle Bob’s is supplying volunteers, collecting canned goods, and contributing boxes in which to store the collected items.
Now in its 20th year, Stamp Out Hunger is the nation’s largest single-day food drive, collecting more than one billion pounds of food over the years. Postal customers are asked to leave a sturdy bag of non-perishable food items such as soup, canned vegetables, pasta or rice next to their mailbox prior to the regular delivery time.
“We encourage everyone to participate by leaving a package by their mailbox or dropping it at any Uncle Bob’s self-storage facility,” said Diane Piegza, vice president of corporate communications for Uncle Bob’s. “Hunger remains a very real issue for millions of Americans including the young and elderly. Every donation counts.”
Sovran is a self-administered and self-managed equity real estate investment trust in the business of acquiring and managing self-storage facilities. The company operates 446 properties in 25 states under the name Uncle Bob's Self Storage.
