The New Year is well underway now and folks have either broken their resolutions or will likely follow through with them if they haven’t broken them by now. Even though 2012 is almost a month in the past there is no reason not to reflect on the many successes—like all the community work–that a company may or may not have done in the last year.
For the mobile self storage company Door to Door Storage 2012 saw the company heavily invest time and space in the communities that they serve. In total when all the time is tallied from the Door to Door facilities across the country over 1,700 hours were donated to various charities long with the space to hold close to 68,000 of goods!
“All of us at Door to Door are grateful for the opportunity to assist so many organizations in 2012. Working together to help individuals in need provides additional meaning to what we do every day and we look forward to continuing these efforts in 2013,” said Kelly.
Much of the time went to help victims of the wildfires in Texas. Over the last year nearly 28,000 fires burned close to four million acres of land taking with it almost 2900 homes and another 2800 other buildings in the process. The county of Bastrop was especially hit hard with 1645 homes lost in just one month!
The spirit of volunteerism is one of the many things that make America great; something that likely factors into the decision of Door to Door to dedicate so much time to the community. Another great part of Americana is the Great American Road Trip. Door to Door Storage decided to honor it earlier this year with a photo contest.
People submitted their pictures along with a 500 word synopsis of their trip to the Door to Door Facebook page.
“For some people, traveling is about getting from Point A to Point B as fast as possible and for others traveling is stressful,” said Tracey Kelly, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Door to Door Storage. “Anthony’s story [the winner of the contest] on the other hand captures the essence of what a road trip can be. It serves as a reminder that the journey itself can be just as rewarding as the destination.”
So between committing over 1700 hours of community service, honoring the Great America Road Trip, and running a successful business the people at Door to Door were pretty busy in 2012!
