Amazing Spaces Storage Centers, a self-storage operator with four facilities in Texas, recently donated $1,918 to the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Galveston. The company began collecting funds in September for the annual Make a Difference Donation Campaign, which was launched by the Texas Self Storage Association (TSSA) in 2001. Amazing Spaces joined the effort in 2004.
The campaign encourages customers, associates, friends and families to donate money to the cause. Over the span of six weeks, Amazing Spaces raised $959. The company then matched the amount, donating a total of $1,918 to the campaign.
“We are always so excited each year to help this wonderful charity that has been providing a wonderful service to children in our area since 1960,” said Kathy Tautenhahn, vice president of Amazing Spaces.
Shriners Hospitals for Children is a healthcare system of 22 hospitals dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing pediatric specialty care, innovative research, and teaching programs for medical professionals. Children up to age 18 with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate are eligible for care and receive all services in a family-centered environment, regardless of the patients’ ability to pay. Of the 22 hospitals comprising the hospital network, the Galveston hospital is one of only four that specialize in pediatric burn treatment, for which they are world-renowned.
Established in 1986, the TSSA is a non-profit trade association dedicated to enhancing the quality of the self-storage industry in Texas. It provides opportunities for members to increase their industry knowledge through education, research, discussion and the exchange of information.
Houston-based Amazing Spaces has locations in Houston, Spring, the Medical Center, and The Woodlands. In addition to traditional self-storage units, the facilities offer RV- and boat-storage, wine storage and more.
