PODS® Moving and Storage
Passionate about the community, Yapp utilizes the mobility and storing abilities of PODS® containers to relieve charities the stress of logistics by using his own trucks, fuel and employees.
“We are more in awe of the Tri-Counties true heroes that provide an incredible network of supporters who work tirelessly for the area’s individuals and families that are most in need,” said Yapp.
Organizations PODS® currently supports includes FOOD Share of Ventura County, Casa Pacifica, Lighthouse for Women, ArtWalk Ventura and the California Strawberry Festival.
“The bottom line is PODS® does it because it is our small opportunity to do the right thing, the thing that every thriving business should do and that is gives back to the community that supports us,” Yapp explains.
