San Diego Self Storage (SDSS), which operates nearly 20 facilities throughout Southern California, and its charity partner, Rubio's Mexican Restaurants, collected 13,000 toys and $500 in cash during the company’s 16th annual drive to benefit the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots. Donations were accepted at all 18 SDSS facilities from Nov. 1 to Dec. 19, as well as during the Encinitas Street Fair and at the Dec. 7 San Diego Chargers game.
Coupons for a free taco at any Rubio's San Diego location were given to the first 50 donors who dropped off a toy at each storage site. In addition, SDSS held a drawing at each facility for a $100 credit toward a self-storage rental for a new or existing tenant. Rubio's also donated a family four-pack of complimentary meal cards.
“Every holiday season we look for creative opportunities to enhance our annual toy-collection campaign, and Rubio’s was extremely generous in their willingness to join us again this year. We’re sincerely grateful for their support and continued partnership,” said SDSS Managing Partner J. Terry Aston. “SDSS is dedicated to helping military families and found Rubio’s to be equally excited in supporting children of our military personnel, who have sacrificed so much to serve our country and defend our freedom.”
In operation for 65 years, Toys for Tots distributes new toys to children all over the country during the holidays.
Founded in 1972, SSDS has a network of 18 self-storage facilities in San Diego County and additional facilities in Los Angeles and Orange counties. The company is locally owned and operated.
