Phoenix, AZ, November 25, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The Arizona Self-Storage Association (AZSA) has announced the launch of its first annual statewide Toys For Tots campaign. AZSA member facilities will participate in the campaign by serving as drop-off locations for the Toys for Tots Program.
"Participating in the Toys for Tots drive is the ideal way for AZSA members to give back to their local communities," says Martin Lorch, President of the Arizona Self-Storage Association. “In view of the current economic difficulties impacting the state of Arizona, participating in the toy drive gives member facilities the opportunity to make a difference and bring happiness to many disadvantaged children this Christmas."
Facility members will have collection boxes in place at their self-storage facilities throughout the holiday season. Participating facilities will encourage their self-storage tenants and the general public to donate new toys to the effort.
