Not only does Amazing Spaces Storage Self Storage have amazing self storage facilities they also do amazing charitable service for their communities. They have just concluded their donation drive “Make A Difference” for the Shriner’s Hospital.

In 2001, the Texas Self Storage Association spearheaded the “Make A Difference Drive.” They asked their members to participate in the fundraising campaign to make a meaningful difference in children’s lives. 

Amazing Spaces Storage Centers joined forces with the TSSA in 2004. This is their ninth donation campaign.

“Every year during the fundraiser, we ask our customers to donate just $1.00. By the end of the fundraiser, it’s amazing to see that when we all work together by contributing a little, we raise a lot for the kids at the hospital!” said Missy Colgin, Property Manager of Amazing Spaces Storage Centers’ Medical Center location.

All donations go directly to the Shriners Hospital for Children in Galveston. The 2013 TSSA “Make a Difference” campaign ended at the annual TSSA convention that was held this year in The Woodlands from October 27 – 29. A charity poker tournament, live auction, and silent auction took place during the convention to also raise funds to benefit the Shriners Hospitals for Children. In total, the association was able to raise over $90,000.00 this year.

Amazing Spaces launched their drive September 1. Their customers and communities donated $874.00. To show appreciation to the communities for their contributions, Amazing Spaces matched the total amount donated, bringing the final donated figure to $1,748.00.

Shriners Hospitals for Children has 22 non-profit hospitals in North America. They initially started out as hospitals that specialized in the treatment and rehabilitation of children that had been seriously burned. Today, they treat a wide variety of pediatric care: such as scoliosis, clubfoot, hip dysplasia, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate. Their headquarters are in Tampa, Florida.

Shriners also conduct innovative research and provide outstanding teaching programs for medical professionals. Children up to the age of 18 can get medical help regardless of the patients’ ability to pay for their treatment. They receive all of their services in a family-centered environment.
