Encinitas, CA, October 10, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- San Diego Self Storage (SDSS), organizational entity of Olivenhain Self Storage located in Encinitas, donated a storage unit for one year to Urban Surf for Kids (US4K) in response to a growing need to house merchandise donated by corporations and private individuals in anticipation of opening a US4K thrift store. Urban Surf 4 Kids is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that empowers orphans and foster youth by utilizing water-based activities and encouraging them to give back to others through community-based projects. Merchandise donations were overloading the US4K’s physical office space on Utah Street in San Diego and Olivenhain Self Storage had available storage space to alleviate their overcrowded situation. The merchandise will be stockpiled in the storage unit until it can be inventoried for either display in the new US4K retail thrift store or added to their existing e-commerce online store.
According to Olivenhain Self Storage Manager Chris Wood, “San Diego Self Storage has built a great relationship with our local communities, and throughout many years have partnered with non-profit organizations whose missions align with our corporate core values. Giving back to the community is of the utmost importance, particularly regarding programs that develop and teach local youth successful traits to achieve success and mentor them to become responsible stewards of the environment. This new partnership is another way our organization proves that being aware of our local communities needs and providing them with assistance propels wonderful organizations like Urban Surf 4 Kids to make a difference, impacting so many lives in the greater San Diego community.”
Hector Lopez, Marketing Manager for US4K elaborated, “We’re tremendously grateful to SDSS for providing us with much-needed storage space. The merchandise we collect and house at Olivenhain Self Storage will enable us to raise money for deserving orphaned youth and foster children through our foundation. Although we do not have a storefront location at the present time, we’ll be able to document the donations and add items to our online store until we have secured retail space for a brick-and-mortar facility in Encinitas. US4K is encouraged by the benevolence SDSS has demonstrated by such a meaningful gesture --- the passion of giving back to the community it a quality that Olivenhain Self Storage wholeheartedly represents.”
