Mansfield Self & RV Storage is teaming up with Thames Valley Council for Community Action Inc. (TVCCA) to collect boots for charity. The self-storage facility at 533 Route 32 will serve as a drop-off for the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) Santa Anonymous Winter Boot Project 2012.
To participate, donators are asked to mail their name, address and phone number to RSVP Santa Anonymous, 185 Broad St., Room 215, Killingly, CT, 06239, or fax the information to 860.779.5429. Donators should indicate the number of boot pairs they’ll provide. Santa Anonymous will then send the donator a letter with the first name, gender, age and boot size of the assigned child or children. The donator can then drop off the boots at Mansfield Self & RV Storage during business hours, Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., or on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“We love to get involved and help the community in anyway we can,” said Marisa Houser, manager of Mansfield Self & RV Storage. Self-storage tenants who donate to the charity will also receive $25 off their rent for one month.
Thames Valley Council for Community Action Inc. is a nonprofit organization offering numerous community programs including emergency housing, food and career training.
Opened in 2006, Mansfield Self & RV Storage has participated in several community efforts including offering free storage to fire victims and sponsoring Little League. In addition to climate-controlled storage units, the facility offers RV and boat storage, packing supplies and commercial storage.
