Premier Self Storage in Bracebridge, Ontario, Canada, is now the new home of the Manna Food Bank, which provides food to the hungry in the local area. Located at 345 Ecclestone Drive, the self-storage facility better meets the charitable organization's needs than the Lions Club building where it was formerly housed, according to a press release.
The Lions building did not meet the requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. The new space is fully wheelchair accessible, has a separate interview room, a larger waiting room, a washroom, and increased food-storage space.
“We really feel this will serve our clients’ needs very well,” said Manna President Wendee Cameron. “The Bracebridge Lions have provided us with subsidized space for many years, and for that we can’t thank them enough. But we had to find a new location.”
The Manna Food Bank was established in 1989. It serves residents of Gravenhurst, Huntsville and other areas in Muskoka. In 2010, it provided groceries to 2,067 families.
Premier Self Storage provides indoor storage, climate-controlled storage, document storage, packing and moving supplies and more. The 200-unit facility features a large, indoor, drive-in area to load and unload customers belongings.
