The American author Edward Everett Hale wrote, “I cannot do everything, but I can do something.” At Manhattan Mini Storage, our “something” is finding ways we can give back to the city because it’s the greatest and because improving it means improving the lives of the greatest (our customers!)
Most recently, in the case of the New York Dream Center, a non profit organization that helps inner city communities have access to resources they need, we were able to provide storage space in New York City where they could store and sort donated items.
From Brian Shjerve, Director of Corporate Relations for The New York Dream Center:
“Throughout each month, the New York Dream Center receives donations of food, clothing and hygiene items from various sources to give to those in the community who are in need of assistance. Needing a place store and sort the donated items, we contacted Manhattan Mini Storage and told them what we are doing to help the city of New York as well as what our storage needs where. The management of Manhattan Mini Storage graciously donated 3 units totaling 150 square feet of space for one year completely free!”
To Brian, and the rest of the volunteers at Dream Center, and to the other organizations we’ve helped, we just wanted to say, we’re more than happy to do our something.
