USSelfStorageLocator.com, an online directory that helps consumers find storage facilities and generates rental leads for industry operators, is making sure active military personnel will soon enjoy a supply of Thin Mints, Tagalongs and other treats. The company has made a donation to the Girl Scout Council of Tropical Florida Inc. “Cookies From the Heart” program, which sends cookie care packages to active and deployed soldiers.
Many active military members are self-storage customers, company officials said. “It is with great pride that we send Girl Scout cookies to the men and women who serve our country,” said Victor Dante, CEO of USSelfStorageLocator.com. “This small token brings something very American to our soldiers so far away and lets them know that we are thinking about them back home in the U.S.”
“We get many requests for Girl Scout cookies from deployed servicemen. Getting donations from companies such as USSelfStorageLocator.com helps us honor those requests, while the sale of the cookies helps us fund our many programs,” added Eva Prada, the Girl Scout Council’s product sales director.
According to the council’s website, the “Cookies From the Heart” program partners with Forgotten Soldiers Outreach Inc., which sends care packages and letters of encouragement to deployed soldiers, and the medical facilities at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. The council serves more than 20,000 girls and adult volunteers in Florida.
Headquartered in North Miami Beach, Fla., USSelfStorageLocator.com allows consumers to find, compare and reserve self-storage units online. The website features software integrations with all major property-management systems and the ability to pull data and push reservations in real time.
