Every year, thousands of children across the world wake up on Christmas morning to presents under the tree. Some of our most cherished memories happen during the holiday season and we are thankful to be fortunate enough to enjoy new toys, clothes, and other presents.
For many families in San Antonio though, presents under the tree aren’t financially feasible this year. Lockaway Storage thinks everyone deserves to celebrate on Christmas, so that’s why we’re partnering with the US Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation to collect presents for San Antonio’s neediest children.
“We wanted to do something Christmasy during the season of giving and I love Toys-4-Tots, so we signed up and picked up our boxes last week,” said assistant manager Tiara Thompson. “We decorated and it looks really nice. We also put up posters in our office and elevators to let everyone know.”
Lockaway Storage – Converse will accept donations from now until December 13th. Anyone who donates a toy will be entered into a raffle that will be held on December 12th and has a chance to win a gift basket full of prizes.
This year’s Toy’s for Tots drive is particularly important to the Converse team. Facility Manager Patrick Galvan decided to start the donation drive after participating in similar charity campaigns in the past.
“I always told myself, since when I first started, that if I ever got my own store that I would do everything I could to help the community,” said Patrick. “It means a lot to me and my family. We always donate to organizations that help kids, so I thought it was a good opportunity to give back.”
Come on down to Lockaway Storage on 8401 Crestway Road between now and December 13th to help make a child’s Christmas special!
