Storage King USA, which operates 23 self-storage facilities in seven states, hosted a charity yard sale on June 25 at its Belcamp, Md., site and raised $450 for the Humane Society of Harford County Inc., a nonprofit animal rescue. The event at 1339 Belcamp Road enabled tenants, local businesses and residents to sell goods to each other and the community.
The yard sale also included a mock, live storage-unit auction as well as a silent auction that included donated goods from Aruba Sun & Spa, Bushmill Tavern, Box Hill Crabcakes, Edible Arrangements, Jimmy John’s and Riverside Pub. An online storage auction took place following the live event.

The shelter accepts all types of animals, offering food, medical care and shelter. It also provides pet training, a pet-food pantry, and spay and neuter services.
