Amazing Spaces Storage Centers, a self-storage operator with four facilities in Texas, recently donated $5,106 to Shriners Hospitals for Children in Galveston, Texas. The company collected funds from Sept. 1 through Oc. 31 as part of the annual “Starfish: Make a Difference" campaign, launched in 2001 and operated by the Texas Self Storage Association, of which Amazing Spaces is a member.

The campaign encourages self-storage customers, associates, friends and families to donate money to the cause. Amazing Spaces received $2,553 in donations, and then matched the amount. The company has raised more than $42,000 since it joined the effort in 2004.

“We are always so excited each year to help this magnificent charity that has been providing a wonderful service to children in our area since 1960,” said Kathy Tautenhahn, vice president of Amazing Spaces.

The 2014 Make a Difference campaign concluded during the TSSA’s annual convention in October. A charity poker tournament during the event also raised funds for Shriners. To date, more than $500,000 has been raised by the TSSA and its members.

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 hospitals comprising the network, the one in Galveston is one of only four that specialize in pediatric burn treatment.

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.

Open since 1998, Amazing Spaces has locations in Houston (2), Spring and The Woodlands, Texas. In addition to traditional self-storage units, the facilities offer RV and boat storage, wine storage, and more.
