StorageMart is donating the free use of a large self-storage unit at its downtown Kansas City location to Bridging The Gap (BTG), a local non-profit organization aimed at conserving the environment and promoting environmental awareness.
BTG uses the unit to store equipment such as wheelbarrows and spades for programs that involve planting and digging. Some of the programs include Kansas City WildLands, Five Green Things, EarthWalk, Clean Commute, Walking School Bus and others. The programs range in services from restoring natural habitat, reducing carbon emission and even walking children to school.
StorageMart owns and operates more 135 self-storage properties in the United States and Canada.
BTG opened in 1991 as Kansas City’s first volunteer-staffed community recycling center. Today, the organization works with approximately 2,600 volunteers annually who work to make their community healthy and sustainable.
