FORT MILL SC HOLIDAY GIVING: WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Better Boxes Self Storage, located on Gold Hill Road offers self storage space when you need it. We recommend short term storage for our college students and long term storage, while moving a home or business. Our storage experts not only help you while moving but we are doing our annual Fort Mill SC holiday giving initiative and need your help. Every year we enjoy giving back to our neighborhood charities for the holiday season and this year we chose Toys for Tots and Austin’s Shoe Drive. A national organization changing the lives of children one toy at a time.
HELPING TOYS FOR TOTS
Beginning in 1947, Toys for Tots founder Major Bill Hendricks and his wife Diane, wanted to give back to their Los Angeles community with a few toys for Christmas. There was no organization at the time to facilitate the giving, so they made their own. Toys for Tots started with 5000 toys donated and continued to grow. In 1948 is was directed that all Marine Reserve sites would start a Toys for Tots campaign. Over the years, celebrities, politicians, local businesses joined the campaigns and Toys for Tots has seen exponential growth. There have been 18 million toys donated to over 7 million children since the very first toy drive in 1947. Stop by our office to donate a new unwrapped toy for our Fort Mill SC holiday giving event or your local Toys for Tots donation center.
AUSTIN’S SHOE DRIVE
We are also collecting gently worn or new shoes for our second holiday initiative. These shoes will go to different organizations supporting our families, the homeless, and others in our Fort Mill SC community. Talk with our store manager for all the details.
