    Default Holiday Charity

    ISS unveiled a special feature in the December issue and this week in the e-newsletter, called The Heart of Self-Storage, dedicated to highlighting all the many wonderful things self-storage professionals are doing.

    We've been flooded with news about facilities participating in food drives, Toys for Tots and other charitable organizations.

    What charitable organizations does your facility support? Anyone trying something new this year?

    Our company usually adopts a family, and then we get to shop for them right before our holiday party.

    This year, we are going to help the Salvation Army sort toys, and my hubby and I are going to help decorate the senior center.
    The customer isn't always right, the trick is making them think they are!

    Trying something new? Well, does having to scramble for a venue for a toy giveaway for 1,000 kids count? We went from our usual place of 14+ years having a scheduling conflict (someone really goofed and it wasn't us) to having no home for the toy day.

    We made three phone calls and within one hour we had THREE places for the children & the toys!!! Now if we can just keep the feel good, look out for each other going 52 weeks per year. Yes gang, that is a challenge to you all.
