San Diego Self Storage (SDSS) collected a record 16,232 donations last month during its 14th annual Toys for Tots drive. The toys were collected at all 18 of the company’s San Diego-area self-storage facilities as well as during a San Diego Chargers home football game on Dec. 16. The number of toys surpassed the previous year’s total of 10,726.
"We’re very pleased to announce a significant increase in the number of toys donated this year over our collection from last year,” said J. Terry Aston, managing partner. “San Diego residents rose to the occasion. We’re grateful for all who donated during the campaign that allows us to provide a meaningful holiday celebration for families who are in need."
The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program provides underprivileged children with new toys at Christmas.
Founded in 1972, SDSS provides self-storage in San Diego, Los Angeles and Orange counties. The company is locally owned and operated.
