Between October 28 and November 18, 2019, our partners from U.S. Storage Centers held a Thanksgiving Food Drive at 14 of their locations nationwide. Together, they collected a total of 784 lbs. of food, which will provide more than 650 meals to their neighbors in need!
U.S. Storage Centers provided potential donors with a list of the most requested Thanksgiving non-perishable food items, including canned vegetables, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and instant potatoes. Although every branch made an impact, the Phoenix location led the way by collecting 252 lbs. of food, which will provide 200 meals to food insecure families in the Phoenix, AZ area! Our friends from Lifetime Moving & Storage volunteered to deliver all of those donations to the St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance. The team in Carson, CA came in second, collecting 122 lbs. of food, which will provide more than 100 meals to families in their community.
There are more than 40 million people facing food insecurity in the United States, including 1 in 6 children. Thank you to our partners from U.S. Storage Centers for continuing to support our mission to fight hunger nationwide!
