-- San Diego Self Storage (SDSS) and Rubio’s® joined forces for the 15th Annual SDSS Toys for Tots holiday toy drive by collecting 16,463 toys and $1,126.00 in cash donations at 18 SDSS facilities throughout San Diego. Through SDSS, Rubio’s offered Free Eats Cards for a complimentary taco at any of Rubio’s San Diego locations for the first 50 donors who dropped off a toy at each SDSS facility. During the toy drive, all SDSS facilities conducted a drawing for a $100 credit toward a tenant’s storage rental (new or existing tenant) and Rubio’s donated a family four-pack of complimentary meal cards. Last year the US Marine Corps Reserve delivered 136,976 toys to children in the San Diego county area and SDSS contributed 16,232 toys to that effort. In partnership with Rubio’s, SDSS surpassed this amount by approximately 200 toys during the 2013 collection drive, plus collected cash funds. The Toys for Tots campaign has been running for approximately 64 consecutive years.
SDSS Managing Partner, J. Terry Aston, remarks, “We were fortunate to have Rubio’s as a SDSS Toys for Tots campaign partner this year and we’re very grateful for its support, which contributed to the success of our results. Their participation enhanced the collection effort by offering a coupon for a free taco, redeemable at any of their San Diego locations to ‘early bird’ donors who dropped off a toy at our facilities---we found a mutual partner in our toy drive to supplement the efforts of the US Marine Corps Reserve. SDSS is dedicated to helping military families and found Rubio’s to be equally excited to help us in supporting military personnel who have served our country.”
The US Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program delivers new toys during the holidays, with the purpose of sending a message of hope to worthy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders (toysfortots.org)
