Greater numbers of self-storage operators are contributing to charitable events and organizations as a means of giving back to their communities, connecting with customers and establishing a philanthropic corporate mission. While many seek out local opportunities, others are getting on board with national programs that allow them to donate funds through pre-organized events and contribution structures.
One option is the "One for the Troops" fundraising program established by Wounded Warrior Outdoors, a non-profit organization that provides combat-wounded service members with therapeutic outdoor adventures across North America. A new online image gallery published by Inside Self-Storage provides details about WWO, the program it has established in conjunction with self-storage industry leaders, and how facility operators can get involved.
