The holidays are the time to spend with family and enjoy the year, do you need help preparing? Ocean Storage and Bay Storage can be great resources to use this time of year when you need extra space. Each of our storage facilities in coastal Virginia offers storage units and moving supplies for your belongings as well as a holiday initiative you can help with. This year you can donate gifts that give back to each of our communities. We want to pay it forward and need your help to make this year’s collection bigger than ever.
Check out which organization our stores are helping and donate today.
Holidays in Yorktown VA
Ocean Storage on Professional Parkway is supporting two organizations! Bring in your new unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots and The Elf Patrol. Toys for Tots has been handing out new toys to families struggling during this time of year since 1947. We are happy to be working with our local Yorktown VA Toys for Tots office. The deadline to give is December 13th
Your donations will also go towards the Elf Patrol, an organization working to ensure each child has a gift to open. They support kids dealing with hospice, shelters, or homelessness. This year the goal is to provide assistance to 1500 people in the community. Together we can reach this goal! The holiday event will be happening all season!
Gifts That Give Back in Virginia Beach VA
Our location on South Oriole Drive is hosting a holiday collection for Seton Youth Shelters. This organization provides 24/7 shelter and assistance for youth in crisis in Hampton Road. Donate items from our list until December 20th.
Ocean Storage on Northampton Boulevard is gathering canned food for the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore. This foodbank has been operating since 1981 and is working towards a hunger-free community. With your donation, we can get one step closer to their goal. Stop by the office with your donation! The last day to drop canned food off here is December 6th.
Charitable Donations for Cape Charles VA
Bay Storage in Cape Charles is also collecting gifts that give back to our community. You can help by bringing in items for the Eastern Shore Coalition for Domestic Violence (ESCADV). Your gifts will help their mission, to empower and support victims of domestic and sexual abuse. ESCADV offers programs, 24/7 assistance, shelter, and so much more. We can help with cleaning supplies, wipes, toiletries, and more; find a full list on our flyer.
Our Supported Charity in Norfolk VA
Ocean Storage in Norfolk VA is sponsoring the Union Misson Ministries and Samaritan House. Both of our holiday collections will be happening until January 30th and be collecting the same items. The Union Mission Ministries provides a warm meal to restore the lives of men and women in need. Support from our community means this organization can help one more person, provide them with a meal, safe shelter, or whatever is in need.
The Samaritan House assists those struggling to get out of a violent relationship and helps them find the resources to recover. They can offer support and shelter for those affected.
