San Diego Self Storage (SDSS), an operator with 19 facilities in the Greater San Diego area, collected 10,726 toys during its 2011 Toys for Tots holiday-donation drive, establishing a new company record. The company collected 8,570 toys in 2010.
"This year we increased the number of toys collected despite a challenging economy, and were grateful to our SDSS staff, tenants and the community members we serve who were instrumental in making this annual toy drive a success," said Managing Member J. Terry Aston. "We were also fortunate to have several media partners who helped us spread the word to enlist the support of the general public. These combined elements helped us exceed our expectations.
SDSS in the following communities participated: Carlsbad, Carmel Valley, East Lake, Encinitas, Golden Triangle, Jamacha Point, La Jolla, Mira Mesa, National City, North County (Escondido), Temecula, Olivenhain, Otay Crossing, Otay Mesa, Poway, Solana Beach, Sorrento Mesa and Sorrento Valley.
The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program provides underprivileged children with new toys at Christmas.
Founded in 1972, SDSS provides self-storage in San Diego, Los Angeles and Orange counties. The company is locally owned and operated.
