San Diego Self Storage Toys for Tots Collection Keeps Giving

San Diego, CA (I-Newswire) February 15, 2013 - San Diego Self Storage (SDSS) sponsored its 14th annual holiday toy drive benefiting Toys for Tots by collecting toys at each of their 18 locations throughout the greater San Diego region with a cumulative number of toys equaling 16,232 donations. During the toy drive, an anonymous donor was motivated to donate 26 bicycles for underprivileged children in the San Diego area. Driven by the call to action to donate toys to the SDSS collection, the donor was motivated by an inspirational experience he shared with his daughter.

According to the donor, "We have a storage unit at Butterfield Ranch Self Storage in Temecula and we noticed that SDSS facilities were collecting toys for children during the holidays. Every year I work with a local retail establishment to donate bicycles for the toy drive, but this year, I was particularly moved by an experience I had with my daughter in Seattle and decided to increase the number of bikes I could possibly afford to donate. I have worked with my church on many occasions (Crossroads Church in Temecula), but when I had the opportunity to visit a shelter in Seattle where children have only had access to second-hand bikes, I knew I would have to do more this year. I was moved beyond belief at what a new bike could mean to a youngster who has nothing---a new bike is freedom, escape from a bad situation, exercise and the ability to be creative and realize a dream of ownership. When I was a kid growing up in a humble environment, I used to wash and polish my bike every day, and this gave me the prestige to fit in with the other kids in the neighborhood. I dropped several new bikes off to the children in this small Seattle town and the look on the young girls' face, when she saw a shiny, new pink bike reminded me of how important a simple gesture like this can be to a foster child."
