DEStorage.com, which operates six self-storage facilities in Delaware, recently hosted a school-supply drive and fundraiser for Batey Central in La Romana, Dominican Republic. The drive was a collaboration with Ears to Hear Radio Ministries, a nonprofit that does charitable and missionary work in the Dominican Republic and Haiti abroad as well as in Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania.
“Destorage.com matched all monetary donations and raised $11,250 total, and collected more than 700 school-supply items. These seemingly small tokens will enable and empower education that will in fact change the lives of these children,” said Shawn Rineholt, president of Ears to Hear.
Batey Central provides education to 185 students in all grade levels, who also receive a hot meal every day and have access to medical care. Many are stateless Haitian children who don’t receive education outside the private school, according to the source.
Based in Delaware, DEStorage.com is a subsidiary of Investors Realty Inc., a diversified property-management firm headquartered in Dover, Del. It operates six facilities in Dover, Milford, Millsboro, Rehoboth, Seaford and Smyrna. The company also has two properties under construction in Avondale and Georgetown, Pa., which are expected to open this year.
