February 13, 2010 (San Diego)----San Diego Self Storage’s Jamacha Point facility in Spring Valley donated 100 corrugated boxes for shipping supplies to benefit earthquake victims in Haiti. The boxes transported items collected at the Light of the World Church, including clothing, medical supplies, food and water.

According to Area Manager David Osuna, "One of our employees, Zabdiel Zavaleta, approached me to enlist my support for a box donation from San Diego Self Storage to ship items from a collection drive his church organized in his local community. It was his way of contributing to the relief efforts in Haiti and they needed to make sure the items would reach their final destination safely and intact. Community outreach efforts are an important part of our business and we were very pleased to supply the boxes.”

San Diego Self Storage engages in a variety of projects throughout the year that benefit non-profit organizations, and they encourage their employees to participate in the implementation of these activities. During tumultuous times such as natural disasters (wildfires, floods, earthquakes), managers become true counselors; San Diego Self Storage was very involved early on with relief efforts during the San Diego wildfires. The company provided packing materials, moving vans and storage units for families who lost homes during the disaster.

Founded in 1972, San Diego Self Storage has facilities in the following communities countywide, including personal and corporate storage: Carlsbad, Carmel Valley, East Lake, Encinitas, Escondido, Golden Triangle, Jamacha Point (Spring Valley), La Jolla, Mira Mesa, National City, Olivenhain, Otay Crossing, Otay Mesa, Poway, Solana Beach, Sorrento Mesa and Sorrento Valley. The company also has facilities in Los Angeles and Orange County.
