On Nov. 23, Westy Self Storage of Stamford, Conn., will distribute children’s wish lists as part of Operation Santa, an annual drive that collects and distributes winter coats and toys to underprivileged children at Benjamin Franklin School/P.S. 55 in the Bronx, N.Y. The self-storage facility is designated as the drop-off location for the donated goods from Nov. 23 through Dec. 15. It will also store the goods and provide the final delivery to the school via one of its moving trucks.
To kick off the event, Westy will host a reception in its grand lobby at 80 Brownhouse Road on Nov. 23 at 7 p.m. ‘Dear Santa’ letters written by the children will be distributed; guests can take as many letters to fulfill as they wish. Letters can also be obtained by visiting www.operationsantabronx.com.
Westy is open for donation drop-offs seven days a week. Hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
Operation Santa was founded by Kaisa Newhams.
With corporate headquarters in Stamford, Conn., Westy has seven self-storage facilities centers in New York, six in Connecticut and three in New Jersey.
