Do you want to warm up your winter? Folly Road Self Storage is your one stop shop during the holidays. Our Charleston SC storage solutions are perfect all year round, especially when you are hosting the family feast.
Before you finish all your shopping and check your list twice, add a new toy to the cart to help us give back. During the month of December our office is a drop off location for the nationally known Toys for Tots program. Help us make a special moment for a boy or girl in need.
Toys for Tots is an organization many of us are familiar with. This large toy drive is more then giving gifts during the holidays. They focus on extending positive lessons and morals to a younger generation. Their main goal is to be active models in communities. With this kind gesture they promote responsibility and patriotism to girls and boys nationwide.
The United States Marine Corps Reserve (USMCR) founded and continues to promote this organization. Since 1947 USMCR offices have been in charge of spreading Christmas cheer to families who have fallen on hard times. The very first toy drive collected 5,000 toys in Los Angeles. Major Bill Hendricks gave the handmade doll from Diane Hendricks.
In the years to come, the organization saw incredible growth. With the help of many celebrities from Tim Allen to First Lady Reagan, people saw the importance and wanted to make a difference. In 2016 Toys for Tots saw one of the best years that have had since the start. With this year being their 70th year of collecting, we are aiming for the highest amount given.
We could not have done our part without the help of our generous customers. Thank you to everyone who donated a new toy for Toys for Tots. We are making this season special for many boys and girls.
