    Stores and headquarters continue long tradition as toy drive collection sites and program donor.

    LOS ANGELES, California (November 23, 2010) – Storage Solutions and its affiliate, Union Development Company (UDC), are once again sponsoring their annual holiday toy drive benefiting the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots program. The self-storage operator is collecting toys at each of its 21 locations throughout Southern California.

    In addition to supporting a wonderful holiday cause, individuals who drop off a new, unwrapped toy will be eligible for Storage Solutions discounts. New customers can save 50% off a new self storage rental and existing customers can save 25% off boxes and moving supplies. The collection ends December 19 at 5:30 p.m.

    The toy drive is a long-standing tradition for the company – as is a monetary donation made each year when the Marine Corps Reserve picks up toys that are also collected at headquarters. Last year, Storage Solutions and UDC presented a $500 check accepted on behalf of the program by Master Sgt. Wayne Harkley., Ret., now an instructor of Fontana High School Marine Corps Junior Officers Training Corps.

     

    "The company has been involved with Toys For Tots for a long time and everyone here is very proud to support the program. We enjoy making it easy for customers and our local communities to get involved, too," said Jae Ho, Operations Manager.

    About Toys for Tots®:

    The Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation, started in 1947, has been successful in bringing thousands of smiles to needy children each year. Their sole mission is to ensure all less fortunate children have the chance to experience the same joys of the holiday season that millions of Americans take for granted each year.
