San Diego Self Storage (SDSS) sponsored its annual holiday toy drive benefiting Toys for Tots by collecting toys at each of their locations throughout the greater San Diego region. The successful campaign collected a record 10,726 toys, a significant increase from last year’s 8,570 toys received. The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program provides underprivileged children with new toys at Christmas, with the purpose of delivering a message of hope and motivate them to grow into responsible, productive citizens and community leaders (www.toysfortots.org).
According to Managing Member J. Terry Aston, “This year we increased the number of toys collected despite a challenging economy and we’re grateful to our SDSS staff, tenants and the community members we serve who were instrumental in making this annual toy drive a success. 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.”
San Diego Self Storage facilities that participated in the campaign are located in the following communities: 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.
