Ash Properties Inc., a development and property-management company that operates the Atlantic Self Storage brand in Florida, has teamed up with local businesses to collect donations for its “Back 2 School Supply Drive.” Contributions can be made at Atlantic’s 45 facilities as well as participating partner locations in Northeast Florida through Aug. 4. The suggested list of supplies includes backpacks, composition books, notebook paper, crayons, glue and glue sticks, erasers, markers, No. 2 pencils, and scissors.
Elaine Ashourian, active principal of Ash Properties, launched the drive to aid local students in Clay, Duval, Nassau and St. Johns Counties. “We are committed to ensuring kids have the supplies [they] need to succeed throughout First Coast communities and across campuses of local schools,” she said.
The drive’s business partners include Bailey’s Health & Fitness, Beach Boulevard Flea Market, the Black Student Union at the University of North Florida, Jax4Kids, Money Pages and Times-Union Media. “We’re thankful for the support and contributions of the community and our participating business partners,” Ashourian said. “Remember, children are the future, and building a brighter tomorrow starts with them.”
