Help Fund Holiday Services to Benefit Fort Mills SC Residents

Our Community

As the holidays approach, we generally look forward to time spent with family. But the holiday season is not a joyous time for everyone. 2020 has been a difficult year, and many families have been left with financial burdens due to the effects of COVID-19. Better Boxes Self Storage is raising money to donate to The Salvation Army to make sure our neighbors are taken care of and can enjoy this season as well. Swing by our facility in Fort Mills SC to donate and learn more! Better Boxes Self Storage Needs Your Help This Holiday Season Our community has always supported us, and we want to support our neighbors when they need it most. The Salvation Army is anticipating up to 155% more people needing their assistance services this year. Unemployment rates are high, and many people are unable to pay for expenses like bills and food. You can donate to The Salvation Army through Better Boxes Self Storage, and when you do, that money will go directly back into the Fort Mills community. The Salvation Army usually gets a bulk of the funding for its Rescue Christmas program through its red kettles. But with more people out of work and stores closing, you will see fewer red kettles out this year. The Salvation Army needs our help to fund these programs, so it can help Fort Mills residents provide for their families into the new year.

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.
