SpareFoot, an online self-storage marketplace and provider of Web-marketing tools, has started a social-media, school-supply drive called Supply Memories to benefit Communities In Schools of Central Texas, a nonprofit organization focused on dropout prevention.

Supply Memories invites Facebook and Twitter users to reveal a memento they have “stored” since grade school. For every memory shared, SpareFoot will donate $3 in basic school supplies for one student. Each kit includes a notebook, pens, pencils, paper, an eraser and a ruler—the symbol of the company’s brand.

“We launched this company while I was still in school myself,” said Chuck Gordon, SpareFoot founder and CEO. “Our goal with Supply Memories is to give other students a similar opportunity to succeed, no matter their circumstances.”

“[SpareFoot] understood that students need to arrive to school properly equipped in order to succeed and developed a unique social media campaign to accomplish that goal,” said John Duck, director of community partnerships at Communities In Schools of Central Texas.

Participants can contribute via Facebook at www.facebook.com/SpareFoot and Twitter at www.supplymemories.com.

Founded in 2008 and based in Austin, Texas, SpareFoot.com helps consumers find and reserve self-storage units, with comparison shopping tools that show real-time availability and exclusive deals. The company also provides Web-marketing solutions for storage facility owners and operators including AdNetwork, SiteBuilder and GeoPages.
