1-800-PACK-RAT Donates Container to Store Christmas Gifts for Children in Puerto Rico
Portable Storage Container from 1-800-PACK-RAT Will Be Used to Store Items at Event Organized by Barbers United for Puerto Rico
On September 20, 2017, Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico. With sustained winds of 64 mph, wind gusts up to 113 mph, and widespread flooding, the island suffered devastating damage that will require a long-term recovery commitment.
While rebuilding efforts are still underway, a group of barbers, stylists, and entrepreneurs in Broward County, FL decided to come together to collect gifts and toys so that families and children still on the island can have a happy holiday season, even while they are still dealing with the aftermath of the hurricane.
"We are proud to be a part of this charitable event. It is always great to see people in our communities come together to help those in need, especially during the holidays. In this case in particular, while people in Puerto Rico are still rebuilding, it is nice that Barbers United for Puerto Rico will supply items that will bring children and families genuine happiness during a very difficult time," said James Burati III, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing at 1-800-PACK-RAT.
1-800-PACK-RAT will deliver a 16-foot container that will be used to store all the donated items. The all-steel, weatherproof, portable storage container is an ideal solution for the event organizers as it can easily be dropped off and picked up, and the ground-level design will make packing and unpacking convenient as there are no ramps to climb up and down. While on-site, the container will keep all the donated items safe and secure until they are transported to Puerto Rico for final delivery.
Barbers United for Puerto Rico will be collecting items for families in need December 14– 18, 2017 at Unique Cutz Barbershop in Margate, FL. More information about the event can be found on their Facebook page, www.facebook.com/
